(Port Angeles) – Local health officials have downgraded shellfish harvesting for all area beaches.
Shellfishing is now closed for all species on all beaches along the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
Ocean beaches are also closed for the season.
That means all clams, mussels and other invertebrates are off limits. All areas are also closed for sport harvest of scallops. Shrimping and crabbing are still open when in season.
Health officials say tests show elevated levels of Paralytic Shellfish Poison which has prompted the closures.
