Shellfish samples from Hood Canal have been found to contain elevated levels of marine biotoxins that cause Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP). As a result, the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) has closed the beaches from the Jefferson/Mason County line to just past Sisters Point to shellfish harvest. Shellfish harvested commercially are tested for toxin prior to distribution and should be safe to eat. Danger signs are being posted at high-use beaches, warning people not to consume shellfish from this area. The closure includes clams, oysters, mussels, scallops and other species of molluscan shellfish.
