MetadataShow full item record
The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) on Monday issued a warning against the consumption of shellfish from toxic red tide-infested bays in several areas in the Visayas and Mindanao. In its Shellfish Bulletin, BFAR said the Matarinao Bay in Eastern Samar; Lianga Bay in Surigao del Sur; and the coastal waters in Dauis and Tagbilaran City in Bohol as well as Milagros in Masbate, are still positive for paralytic shellfish poison that is beyond the regulatory limit. Its advisory said all types of shellfish and Acetes sp. or “alamang” gathered from these areas are not safe for human consumption.
