Coastal razor clam digs final approval should be known tomorrow

The final decision of the upcoming coastal razor clam season should be known by tomorrow.

“We dug the test clams at midnight [on Sunday] and delivered them to Shoreline [Department of Health office] and are waiting for baited breath,” said Dan Ayres, the head state Fish and Wildlife coastal shellfish biologist. “We will know all the test results by sometime tomorrow.”

If everything is approved here is what the seasons will look like:
