Recreational Shellfish Harvesting
Shellfish - including clams, mussels, oysters, scallops and crab - can sometimes become contaminated with toxins that can make you sick. Below is information about advisories and closure notices for recreational shellfish harvesters.
Shellfish Closures due to Biotoxins
Always check the biotoxin status of the beach where you plan to harvest shellfish. The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) jointly issue shellfish safety closures to protect recreational shellfish harvesters from consuming clams or mussels contaminated with harmful biotoxins.
