By Jennilyne C. Role

San Fernando City, La Union (14 September) -- Coastal waters of Bolinao, Anda, Alaminos, Sual and Wawa, all of the province of Pangasinan remains to be free from toxic red tides, belated report of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) said.

The latest laboratory results conducted by the BFAR and local government units reflected that aquatic products like shrimps, crabs and seashells like mussels and oysters gathered from said areas remains to be safe for human consumption.

Precautions, however, were alerted by BFAR, to be vigilant at all times especially that rainy season is still at hand where coastal waters can easily be affected by the influx of foreign bodies in the water resources.

BFAR, likewise, identified areas that are still positive for paralytic shellfish poison that is beyond the regulatory limit to include coastal waters of Dumanguillas Bay in Zamboanga del Sur; Matarinao Bay in Eastern Samar; Murcielagos Bay in Zamboanga del Norte and Misamis Occidental; Sorsogon Bay in Sorsogon; and Carigara Bay in Leyte.

All types of shellfish and Acetes sp. or alamang gathered from said areas are not safe for human consumption, except for fish, squids, shrimps, and crabs, provided that they are fresh and washed thoroughly before cooking, BFAR report cited. (PIA Region 1/La Union) [top]
