Whatcom County Health Department Media Release

PSP Biotoxin levels increase in Bellingham Bay and decrease in Northern Whatcom County

Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP) biotoxin levels have recently increased in Bellingham Bay and now exceed the limit for safe harvest. As a result, the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) has closed all of Bellingham Bay, Portage Bay, and all waters south to the Skagit County line to the harvest of all species of molluscan shellfish.
