Razor clam stocks are depleted and badly managed. They are threatened by an illegal fishing method known as "electric fishing", where electrodes dragged along the sea bed are used to chase them out of their burrows.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium lumps in razor clams along with other clams as "Best Choice". However, the MCS paints a different picture, rating them 3-5 depending on the method of collection.
