    Default PSP in K-bay

    Tides aren't too extreme right now so probably not a big deal, but halibut cove and Petersen bay have both had farmed oysters that tested above threshold for PSP toxin. Anything from China Poot would be suspect in my book as well.
    Butter clams accumulate PSP faster and in greater amounts than mussels and oysters, and also tend to remain toxic for longer so I would probably call it good for the year...

    Hey Dave, do the PSP levels go down during cold weather? ie, will it be OK to get those clams next spring, or does this put the kabosh on clamming for a long time?
