The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resource (BFAR) issued a ban, Saturday, on the consumption of shellfish coming from Lianga Bay in Surigao del Sur after the water from the bay’s coastal area was found positive for the “red tide toxin.” Under its Shellfish Bulletin No. 41, BFAR made the announcement based on its latest laboratory results. The waters of Lianga Bay specifically cover the towns of San Agustin and Marihatag. The towns of Lianga and neighboring town of Barobo have also been placed on the warning list by the BFAR.
