Limits double on purple varnish clams

Modified: Wednesday, Jan 23rd, 2013


Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission has increased the daily catch limit for purple varnish clams from 36 per day to 72 per day. The purple varnish clam is also known throughout the Pacific Northwest as the purple mahogany clam, the dark mahogany clam, the varnish clam, and the savory clam. (Courtesy photo)


Clam diggers may harvest twice as many purple varnish clams in 2013 as they did in previous years, making it easier to harvest a full meal of this small but tasty clam. Also new to shellfish regulations this year, divers must report their rock scallop harvest.

In response to a public proposal, the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission increased the daily catch limit for purple varnish clams from 36 per day to 72 per day. The purple varnish clam is also known throughout the Pacific Northwest as the purple mahogany clam, the dark mahogany clam, the varnish clam, and the savory clam.
