I live on the bay and can tell you steamer clams, oysters, or crab never got shut down on the bay all year. Maybe it only effects razors??? :dunno:

I think MA 2 crab was shut this year from it, might be wrong.

From my understanding the beach is what is closed, not necessarily the razors specifically.  No shellfish harvest of any kind on biotoxin closed beaches.

There was also a covid close for razors, but thatís different from the biotoxin.  I think that was specifically razors, but again not 100% sure.

tons of boats going out everyday with pots, bringing back crab  and also digging steamer clams. Willapa bay is in pacific county with the green open area.

I guess it's possible there is toxin north and south of the bay, but not in the bay itself.  Seems strange, but I'm not a biologist.  The article above did say the wind sometimes pushes the toxin offshore, so maybe the bay is somewhat protected.

I've always been just a little skeptical about these domoic acid closures.  It just seems to me that these closures really started after 2011.  There were a few long closures before before that, but it just never seemed like they blamed red tide like they do now.  We had blooms in Alaska when I lived there, but it was ALWAYS in the summer, and in the bays where water temps were higher, and never on an open ocean beach. 

I'm sure these closures are for the health of the public, but I just can't help but wonder if the ocean currents didn't bring a bunch of the contamination from Fukushima over here.  It would be nice to know for sure...

Canceling a whole month is suspect.

They should be testing every couple of days if toxin's are the real reason for the closures.

I wouldnít be surprised at all that we are being lied to. It would be interesting to see some independent testing done. I guess that would be illegal because we are not allowed to dig clams to test them.

The Quinaults have a biologist working on this and she verifies the findings. I doubt the Quinaults would be shut down if there were some other reason they didn't want us digging.
