MetadataShow full item record
The public has been advised not to eat seashells gathered from the coastal waters here until the red tide alert status is lifted. Results of the laboratory analysis conducted by the Provincial Maritime Bio-Toxin Testing Center last week showed that shellfishes from this city were positive for red tide toxins. City Agriculture Office (CAO) head Goldwyn Nifras said the examination result means that the presence of toxic algal species of Pyrodiniumbahamense var. compressum in the city waters affected seashells.
