This is a staff statement for a hearing of the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission. The document addresses problems associated with commercial clamming. Some commercial diggers were not selling harvests as required by law, were not properly reporting harvests, and were not paying State fees. Some commercial diggers were taking clams from closed areas, raising fears that contaminated clams supposedly taken for bait might be sold as human food. The report contains supplementary documentation from the Oregon State Police, makes recommendations and addresses how proposed changes would affect the Oregon Revised Statutes. Includes cover memorandum.
