Effective date: March 1, 2006 until further notice.

Species affected: Oysters and all clams, except razor clams.

Location: Penrose Point State Park in Pierce County.

Reason for action: Annual surveys of recreational use indicate the clam and oyster resource at this beach can support a longer season. The oyster population at this beach is entirely the result of artificial enhancement.
