WDFW is having a meeting about clamming and clam seasons this coming Wed. at the Shilo in Ocean Shores.

I'm planning to attend and will present your concerns and desires if you would like to post them here.

I'll just printout the topic and give it to them so I hope for a good response.

I'd like to see them move away from the staggered odd day only digs.

I don't mind paying the 20+ bucks for a license or the 250 bucks over all cost for a mini vacation at Ocean Shores.

What I do mind is the intentional layover to get you spend more money on the days you can't dig and therefore have nothing to do.

It is obvious to me the merchants have lobbied WDFW into this.

Other than that I commend WDFW on their clam management. If ony ODFW would take notice and follow suit!

DOMOIC ACID UPDATE

The latest domoic acid levels were reported today (9/10/03) by the Washington Department of Health. You'll note some changes, some good and some not so good. It is not clear if there is any new toxin showing up or if the increases are just a result of sample variation. We will continue sampling every 7 days. Stay tuned...

Long Beach Area A; 1 on 9/8/03 (down from 7 on 9/3/03)
Long Beach Area OY; 4 on 9/8/03 (down from 13 on 9/3/03)
Long Beach Reserve; 3 ppm on 9/8/03 (down from 4 ppm on 9/3/03)

Kalaloch north; 11 ppm on 9/8/03 (down from 40 ppm on 9/3/03)

Recall, all samples on each beach must test below 20 ppm for 2 sets of collections taken between 7 to 10 days apart.
