Crabbing & Clamming

Oregon estuaries are rich with many species of clams, although only a few of these species are commonly harvested. Razor, gaper, butter, cockle, littleneck and softshell are primarily harvested due to their abundance, size, and taste. A wide variety of other bivalve species are found in Oregon estuaries, but not commonly harvested due either to their scarcity or lack of palatability.
