The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) office here has warned that all kinds of shellfish gathered from Bohol are not safe for consumption.

Other coastal areas found positive for the red tide toxin are western Samar, Eastern Samar, Leyte, Biliran province, Iloilo, Puerto Princesa City in Palawan, and Masbate.
