HARVEST PROFILE

There are native littleneck clams and Manila littleneck clams on this beach, but the habitat is mostly rocky and they are not abundant. There is fair digging for butter clams in the cobble substrate and horse clams can be found in the sandy areas at the south end of the beach. There are also cockles and geoducks on this beach.

This is a good beach for oysters.
