MetadataShow full item record
Coastal waters of the towns of Bolinao and Anda, in this province, are still affected by the red tide, making shellfish gathered in these areas poisonous to humans, authorities said yesterday. Local officials have advised residents as well as visitors to the beaches of these towns not to collect, harvest, transport, or eat shellfish from these coastal areas because they are still positive of paralytic shellfish poison. Based on the latest Shellfish Bulletin No. 16 issued by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) last May 10, BFAR Director Eduardo Gongona said samples of shellfish collected in the two towns tested positive for paralytic shellfish poison beyond the regulatory limit.
