Mussel harvest closure extended to entire coast
The Oregon Department of Agriculture and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife have extended the closure of recreational and commercial mussel harvesting to include the entire Oregon coast, from the mouth of the Columbia River to the California border, due to high levels of paralytic shellfish toxins (PSTs). The closure includes mussels found on the beaches, rocks, jetties, and bay entrances along the coast.
The closure affects only mussels. All other recreational and commercial shellfish harvesting is open for the entire coast.For the complete article see the 11-23-2012 issue.
