South Whatcom shellfishing closed

The Whatcom County Health Department reopened the beaches in south Whatcom County, including Portage Bay, Bellingham Bay and Larrabee State Park, on July 2 after the elevated levels of red tide poisoning and paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) subsided. The beaches were closed again July 8. Beaches in north Whatcom are still open to all species.
