The state just announced that recreational shrimp fishing will close in all waters of Marine Areas 9 and 10, which include the Edmonds and Seattle area shrimp fishing grounds, at 3 p.m. Wednesday.


Species affected: All shrimp


Reason for action: The recreational spot shrimp quota has been reached in both areas.


Other information: If sufficient quota remains after Wednesday, Marine Area 10 (or a portion thereof) could reopen for one day later this month.


Local shrimping: Marine Area 11 (from the Tacoma Narrows Bridge to the northern tip of Vsahon Island) is closed.
