Red tide alert up over Masbate

MASBATE CITY—The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) has warned the public that shellfish collected at the coastal waters of Milagros in Masbate are positive for paralytic poison that is beyond the regulatory limit.

In Shellfish Bulletin No. 03 released on January 30, 2015, BFAR said that all types of shellfish and Acetes sp. or alamang gathered from said area are not safe for human consumption.

Meantime, fish, squid, shrimp, and crab are safe for human consumption, provided that the are fresh and washed thoroughly, and internal organs such as gills and intestines are removed before cooking.

The same bulletin said that the coastal waters of Bolinao and Anda in Pangasinan are now free of the toxic red tide.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
