After Record Razor Clam Harvest WDFW Says See You Next Season

OLYMPIA, Wash. – The 2012-13 recreational razor clam season has come to an end. From October 2012 through May 2013, diggers harvested more than five million clams on Washington’s coastal beaches, the highest number in more than 20 years.

In the months ahead, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife will conduct a coast-wide assessment of razor clam stocks and develop recommendations for the 2013-14 season.
