Through the end of the year, WDFW has tentatively scheduled a total of 41 days of razor clam digs.Beach surveys indicate an average razor clam population at Copalis this year while Twin Harbors, Long Beach and Mocrocks show excellent numbers of clams, Ayres said.“Overall, there are a lot of clams out there and we expect this to be another great season,” he said.Under state law, diggers can take 15 razor clams per day and are required to keep the first 15 they dig. Each digger’s clams must be kept in a separate container. Diggers may not harvest any part of another person’s daily limit, unless they possess a designated harvester card.Razor clam diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable 2014-15 fishing license to harvest razor clams on state beaches. Fishing licenses of various kinds are available on the department’s website at https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov and from license vendors around the state. A new WDFW video, which demonstrates how to teach your kids to harvest razor clams, is available at youtube.com/thewdfw.WDFW recently sought public comments on the upcoming razor clam season.  Ayres said he appreciates that so many people sent in comments.“We have done our best to incorporate as many of those suggestions as possible in the months ahead,” Ayres said.Below is the schedule of proposed razor clam digs, along with evening low tides and beaches:Oct. 7, 2014, Tuesday; 6:26 p.m., -0.5 feet, Long Beach, Twin HarborsOct. 8, 2014, Wednesday; 7:13 p.m., -0.9 feet, Long Beach, Twin HarborsOct. 9, 2014, Thursday; 7:58 p.m., -1.1 feet, Long Beach, Twin HarborsOct. 10, 2014, Friday; 8:43 p.m., -1.1 feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksOct. 11, 2014, Saturday; 9:28 pm, -0.8 feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks, CopalisOct. 12, 2014, Sunday; 10:15 p.m., -0.3 feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks Dec. 19, 2014, Friday; 4:41 p.m., 0.0.feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksDec. 20, 2014, Saturday, 5:23 p.m., -0.6 feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks, CopalisDec. 21, 2014, Sunday, 6:06 p.m., -1.1 feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksDec. 22, 2014, Monday, 6:48 p.m., -1.3 feet, Long Beach, Twin HarborsDec. 23, 2014, Tuesday, 7:31 p.m., -1.3 feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors Dec. 3, 2014, Wednesday; 4:14 p.m., -0.1 feet, Long Beach, Twin HarborsDec. 4, 2014, Thursday; 5:02 p.m., -0.6 feet, Long Beach, Twin HarborsDec. 5, 2014, Friday; 5:45 p.m., -0.9 feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksDec. 6, 2014, Saturday; 6:26 p.m., -1.0 feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks, CopalisDec. 7, 2014, Sunday; 7:05 p.m., -0.9 feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksDec. 8, 2014, Monday; 7:44 p.m., -0.6 feet, Long Beach, Twin HarborsDec. 9, 2014, Tuesday; 8:21 pm, -0.2 feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors Oct. 22, 2014, Wednesday; 6:31 p.m., 0.3 feet, Long Beach, Twin HarborsOct. 23, 2014, Thursday; 7:07 p.m., -0.1 feet, Long Beach, Twin HarborsOct. 24, 2014, Friday; 7:44 p.m., -0.4 feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksOct. 25, 2014, Saturday; 8:22 p.m., -0.6 feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks, CopalisOct. 26, 2014, Sunday; 9:03 p.m., -0.6 feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksOct. 27, 2014, Monday; 9:47 p.m., -0.4 feet, Long Beach, Twin HarborsOct. 28, 2014, Tuesday; 10:36 p.m., -0.2 feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors Dec. 31, 2014, Wednesday, 3:05 p.m., 0.6 feet,  Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks, Copalis For more information on razor clam digging, visit the WDFW website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/razorclams/current.html.last_img read more

Indian football team captain Sunil Chhetri is the newest stalwart from the sporting fraternity to join up on the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak, who has teamed up with Asian Football Confederation (AFC) for a campaign named ‘BreakTheChain’, which aims to tackle further contamination of the virus in the population.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty/ANIAlong with Sunil Chhetri, the campaign also featured former Indian captain and legendary footballer Baichung Bhutia, Myanmar football team skipper Kyaw Zin Thet and Sun Wen, the vice president of Chinese Football Association (CFA) and one of the greatest players ever in women’s football. A total of more than 50 footballers and officials from Asia showed their support for the campaign.With the objective to “inspires hope and solidarity in these challenging times”, as stated by AFC, the ‘BreakTheChain’ was launched on Thursday and has outlined the basic guidelines provided by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and local governments, and is urging the citizens to abide by them.Advertisement “Everyone is struggling in these challenging times,” Chhetri was quoted by IANS at the campaign in Kuala Lumpur today, “I must urge you to follow the advice of the World Health Organization and the best medical practices put in place by your local governments. It is our responsibility to do our part by maintaining our hygiene and if necessary, to stay at home.”India, which has already seen the number of confirmed cases crossing the 1000 mark, with 25 deaths, is currently under a 21-day lock down until 14th April.Advertisement Chhetri, 35, encouraged his fellow citizens to work as a team to curb the further spread of the virus in the country’s population.“Let’s work together – as a team – to break the chain and stop the spread of COVID-19. I stand with everyone in India and around the world to put these challenging times behind us and hope that we can all return to our normal lives soon,” the striker added.However, this is not the first time that the veteran footballer has reached out to the Indian public.
