OREGON COAST -- The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife announced that recreational and commercial crabbing is open again along the entire Oregon Coast.
The area from Cape Blanco, north of Port Orford, to the California border has reopened. Crab samples taken from the area indicate that levels of the marine biotoxin domoic acid have dropped below the alert level.
The entire Oregon Coast is now free of restrictions. ODA and ODFW will continue monitoring marine toxins in crab and shellfish to ensure that the concentrations remain below the alert level.
