Red tide alert raised in Milagros, Masbate

The coastal waters of Milagros in Masbate tested positive for red tide toxin, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) announced.

In Shellfish Bulletin No. 22 Series of 2014, Director Asis G. Perez warned: "all types of shellfish and Acetes sp. or alamang gathered from the area [...] are NOT SAFE for human consumption. Fish, squids, shrimps and crabs are safe for human consumption provided that they are fresh and washed thoroughly, and internal organs such as gills and intestines are removed before cooking."

The government agency also noted that shellfish collected at Irong-Irong Bay in Western Samar are also positive for paralytic shellfish poison that is beyond the regulatory limit.--BICOLSTANDARD.COM BICOL NEWS
