Red toxin still up in Zambales coast - BFAR

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga, Jan 23 (PIA) -- Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) renewed its appeal to the public to refrain from gathering and eating shellfish from the Bataan coastal waters and Masinloc Bay in Zambales as red tide toxin which causes paralytic shellfish poisoning remains present in these areas.

Affected by the ban in Bataan are the municipalities of Mariveles, Limay, Orion, Pilar, Abucay, Samal, and Orani and the city of Balanga.

BFAR Central Luzon information officer Lanie Lamyong said, “ based on the latest shellfish bulletin issued last January 20, the current red tide toxin level in shellfish samples collected from the coastal waters of Bataan and Masinloc Bay are still significantly higher to the 60g STXg/100g tolerable limit.”

Lamyong reiterated that fish, squids, shrimps, and crabs harvested from these areas are safe to eat as long as they are fresh and washed thoroughly and their internal organs such as gills and intestines are removed before cooking. (WLB/CLJD-PIA 3)
