Edible Northwest shellfish, abundant on many park beaches, can be harvested in season. Clamming, crabbing and oystering are excellent at Shine Tidelands (near the Hood Canal Bridge), while sheltered Camano Island has mussels, clams, crab and shrimp. Ocean City, Pacific Pines and other coastal parks are the place to dig razor clams. Other good shellfish-gathering spots include Spencer Spit, South Whidbey, Twanoh and Mystery Bay.

You must have a Washington state shellfish license to harvest shellfish, squid, octopus, sea cucumbers and seaweed. For license information call the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) at (360) 902-2464. For current season openings call WDFW at (360) 796-3215.
