WDFW Seeks Public Comment on Razor Clam Season

WDFW is soliciting public comments by mail and email on this year’s digging options as a lower-cost alternative to conducting a series of public meetings, said Ron Warren, regional WDFW fish manager.


“We welcome public feedback in developing razor-clam seasons, but state budget reductions have made it necessary to change our approach,” Warren said. “We’re hoping this course proves both more economical and more effective in reaching the public.”


During the 2009-10 season, clam diggers harvested more than 3.7 million razor clams on the five ocean beaches open for digging on the Washington coast.
