CANNON BEACH — The next event in the World of Haystack Rock Lecture Series features Matt Hunter, an Astoria-based shellfish biologist with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Marine Resource Program.
Hunter’s talk, “Oregon’s Razor Clam Resource; Past, Current, and the Future,” takes place 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 9, at the Cannon Beach Library, 131 N. Hemlock St., Cannon Beach.
Razor clam commercial harvest is nearly exclusive to Clatsop beach, which is the only area certified by the Oregon Department of Agriculture to sell razor clams for human consumption. Markets for commercial razor clams are mostly local human consumption sales, but also include bait markets, according to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.
