Red Tide still up in Aklan coasts
MetadataShow full item record
Coastal waters in Batan, Altavas and New Washington towns and Batan Bay in Aklan are still positive for red tide toxin, according to the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR). Red tide exists, too, in Gigantes Islands in Carles, Iloilo, and Pilar town and Sapian Bay in Capiz, the BFAR said in its Shellfish Bulletin on Jan. 22. The shellfish the agency collected in the said areas were found "still positive for paralytic shellfish poison beyond the regulatory limit" in laboratory tests and thus not safe for human consumption.
