Beaches Re-Opened for Shellfishing from Point Whitehorn to Canada

The following is a letter we just received from Whatcom County Health Dept.

Good afternoon Shellfish Partners,

The Washington State Department of Health is lifting the biotoxin closure for the area from Point Whitehorn north to the Canadian border, excluding Point Roberts … due to improving biotoxin levels. Please note that Point Roberts and all beaches south of Point Whitehorn remain closed to the recreational harvest of all species of molluscan shellfish.

Those of you who post beaches for us in the area that is re-opened can remove the biotoxin signs effective immediately.  This includes Birch Bay State Park, Birch Bay Village, the Semiahmoo Homeowners Association, and Blaine Harbor.  Health Department staff will remove signs in all other areas within the next 24 hours.

Thank you as always for your generous help.–tk

    Thank you Sarah. I have guests this weekend and might not have known that the restriction was lifted. I appreciate that!

    Best, RP
