Shellfish ban still in force in Capiz
MetadataShow full item record
Harvesting, transporting, selling and eating of all kinds of shellfish remains totally banned in Capiz. Office of the Provincial Agriculturist head Sylvia de la Cruz said the Executive Order issued earlier by Capiz governor Victor Tanco Sr. is still in force after the coastal waters and shellfish meat sample gathered from Sapian Bay tested positive of red tide toxin. Aside from the water, the toxicity of shellfish samples reached 66-67 microgram per 100 grams shellfish meat, which is beyond the regulatory limit set by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, she added.
