Oregon clams include the much-prized razor clam, as well as bay clams -- a catch-all term that includes several different species of clams. Bay clams are widely distributed on the coast, while razor clams are concentrated on the north coast beaches in Clatsop county. Crabbers mostly target Dungeness crab, but also encounter red rock crab. It, too, is fine table fare.
