MetadataShow full item record
The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in Eastern Visayas announced on Friday that the San Pedro Bay in Basey, Samar has been included in the shellfish ban following the detection of “red tide” in the bay. This comes over a month since the bay was cleared free of algae that causes paralytic shellfish poisoning. “All types of shellfish and Acetes sp. locally known as “Alamang or Hipon” gathered from the said area are not safe for human consumption” the BFAR said in its advisory issued on Friday.
