The extended annual quarantine has been lifted for sport-harvested mussels in San Luis Obispo County.
Recent tests for shellfish-borne toxins came back showing safe or undetectable levels, according to the California Department of Public Health.
The quarantine was also lifted for mussels in Del Norte and Humboldt Counties.
The mussel quarantine is issued annually for the California coastline from May 1 through October 31 to protect the public from toxins responsible for paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) and amnesic shellfish poisoning (ASP).
