Red tide spreads in Western Samar
MetadataShow full item record
Two areas in Western Samar have been added to the list of coastal waters across the nation that have been hit by algal blooms, commonly known as red tide, that causes paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP). With red tide toxins swarming in Irong-Irong Bay and Cambatutay Bay, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) issued Shellfish Bulletin No. 17 warning that it is not safe for anyone to consume fish and shellfish caught in those waters. BFAR is reminding residents of other areas that red tide has not abated in Balite Bay in Mati, Davao Oriental, in the coastal waters of Mandaon, Masbate and in Dauis, Bohol.
