HARVEST PROFILE

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.

DNR-411A is boat access only. There is no upland access to this beach. The northern boundary of DNR-411A is about 1,200 feet north of the southern point of Gibson spit. There is a dirt road that ends at the beach near the northern boundary. The harvestable portion of this beach ends just west of the southern point of Gibson Spit (see beach map).
