North Beach is once again open to recreational and Aboriginal harvest of razor clams, butter clams, scallops, and cockles, says Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
A precautionary closure made Dec. 30 for lack of sampling has been lifted — recent samples from the biotoxin monitoring program are acceptable.
Recreational harvesters are reminded they need a valid BC Tidal Waters Sport Fishing licence, and the daily limit for razor clams is 50, with a total possession limit of 100.
The daily limit for both cockles and weathervane scallops is 100, with a possession limit of 200.
