Ninilchik Beaches closed for clams

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game announced that the Ninilchik Beaches would be closed to harvest of razor clams beginning Wednesday and running through the end of 2014.

Bag and possession limits for razor clams harvested from beaches on the rest of the east side of the Cook Inlet have been reduced to 25 razor clams and 25 in possession.

The closure came after interviews with diggers suggested fewer razor clams were being found along the east side of the Cook Inlet, according to the ADFG media release.

The beach is to be closed to taking any clams from the north bank of Deep Creek to a marker located about 3.2 miles north of the Ninilchik River, according to the release.

Razor clam abundance on the Ninilchik Beach will be reassessed in April and May according to the release.
