SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Oregon officials say a restriction in Clatsop County has been lifted, so the entire Oregon coast is now open for razor clam harvesting, effective Tuesday.

But recreational and commercial mussel harvesting remains closed from the Yachats River in Lincoln County to the California border.

The closure is due to elevated levels of paralytic shellfish toxins and includes mussels on all beaches, rocks, jetties and bay entrances.
