The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) has warned the public from harvesting and eating shellfish from Lianga Bay in Surigao del Sur and the coastal waters of Milagros in Masbate that have been added to a list of areas found positive for the red tide toxin. In its Shellfish Bulletin No.24-2018, BFAR said the Matarinao Bay in Eastern Samar; coastal waters of Dauis and Tagbilaran City in Bohol; and Puerto Princesa and Honda Bays, Puerta Princesa City in Palawan are still positive for paralytic shellfish poison that is beyond the regulatory limit. “All types of shellfish and Acetes sp. or alamang gathered from the area shown are not safe for human consumption,” the BFAR advisory said.
