Recreational mussel harvesting is closed from the Coquille River to the California border for elevated levels of paralytic shellfish toxin. The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) announce a portion of the coast has closed for mussel harvesting as paralytic shellfish toxin levels have risen above the closure limit. Mussel harvesting is now closed from the south jetty of the Coquille River to the California border. This includes all beaches, bays, docks, piers, jetties, and rocks. Mussel harvesting remains open from the Columbia River to the north jetty of the Coquille River. Bay clams and crab are open for recreational harvest along the entire Oregon coast. Contact ODFW for recreational license requirements, permits and rules.
