State Closes More Strait Beaches to Shellfish

While I cannot find confirmation of this on either DNR ro WFW web sites, the PDN is reporting that a mussel sample taken from Ediz Hook earlier this week has led to the closure for shellfish harvesting of additional beaches on the Strait of Juan de Fuca because of elevated levels of the potentially deadly paralytic shellfish poisoning, or PSP. Strait beaches from Dungeness Spit west to Cape Flattery now are closed to recreational harvesting of all species of shellfish.
