Species affected: All clams and oysters.

Location: Penrose Point State Park. The park is located in Pierce County on Carr Inlet.

Reason for action: Surveys indicate that the clam and oyster populations will support a three-month fishery. The park tidelands were closed in 2010 due to overharvest in 2009.
