Summary Report of the 2002 Commercial Fishery for Razor Clams (Siliqua patula)

Category: Fishing / Shellfishing - Harvest and Catch Reports

Date Published:  2002

DESCRIPTION:

Preseason Planning

A public meeting for prospective diggers was held on March 19 at South Bend to discuss the upcoming commercial razor clam season. Representatives from the Department of Health, and WDFW Licensing were in attendance along with fishery managers to provide fishers "one-stop shopping". License application materials were provided, questions about the season schedule, and concerns about domoic acid were addressed.

To facilitate communication with harvesters, a "hotline" based out of the Region 6 office was again established to provide commercial razor clam fishery and biotoxin sampling information.
