The Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPAG) here put out a new warning to the public to remind them that all types of shellfish, shrimps, and crabs gathered or harvested from some coastal areas of Pangasinan are not fit for human consumption. The OPAG said that waters off the towns of Bolinao, Anda, and Bani as well as Alaminos City remain positive of the "red tide" toxin which causes paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP). The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) has also kept the red tide alert raised in the coastal waters of Milagros in Masbate; and the towns of Mariveles, Limay, Orion, Pilar, Balanga, Orani, Abucay, and Samal in Bataan.
