Shellfish harvesting from this beach should be avoided west of the southern point of Gibson Spit. This area of the beach is in a health closure zone (see beach map).

Not much is known about clam poulations on this beach, but it is mostly rocky substrate and there is probably not a lot of clam resource here.
