Recreational Ocean And Bay Crabbing: The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) have reopened all recreational crabbing areas throughout the entire Oregon coast, including the ocean, bays, and estuaries. The amounts of domoic acid have been found to be below the closure threshold in two separate tests.

The ODA conducts two rounds of toxicology testing on shellfish per month, depending on the tides and the weather. In order to reopen an area that has been closed because of biotoxins, there must be two consecutive tests with findings that are lower than the closure limit.

It is strongly advised that recreational crab harvesters always remove the crab’s internal organs prior to boiling the crab. This includes removing the viscera, internal organs, and gills from the fish and throwing them away.
