Why you shouldn't eat shellfish from Roxas yet
MetadataShow full item record
Waters in this city have not yet been cleared of the red tide toxin, so it's best to avoid selling and eating shellfish harvested here for now, according to an aquaculturist. Rizalde Astrolabio of the City Agriculturist's Office (CAO) said the waters in barangays Cogon and Punta Cogon and the Cadimahan River, which are all connected to the Sapian Bay, remain contaminated. On Aug. 29 the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) declared the Sapian Bay positive for red tide poisoning.
