Two Whidbey Island beaches opened early for shellfish harvest

OLYMPIA -- The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has opened two Whidbey Island public beaches early this year for the recreational harvest of clams, cockles and mussels.

  • Winas-Maylor Point-East will remain open until further notice
  • Ben Ure (Ala) Spit, open through June 15.
This action was taken to provide opportunities where sufficient clams are available.

Shellfish harvesting on Puget Sound beaches requires a Shellfish/Seaweed licence which may be purchased at most sporting goods stores and at all WDFW regional offices.
