Whidbey Island: Shellfish harvest shut due to red tide toxins

Some north Puget Sound shellfish areas have dangerous levels of red tide, or marine biotoxins, leading to large recreational shellfish closures.

The affected areas include Deception Pass and the northern part of Whidbey Island from Keystone Harbor on the west to Strawberry Point on the east. Anyone who’s recently harvested shellfish from these areas should throw them out.

Eating shellfish contaminated with biotoxins can make people sick. Marine biotoxins aren’t destroyed by cooking or freezing. Symptoms usually begin with tingling lips and tongue, moving to the hands and feet, followed by difficulty breathing, and possibly death.

Shellfish harvest info: or 800-562-5632.
