The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources imposed the ban on gathering,marketing and consuming shellfish from Alaminosafter the latest laboratory test showed the paralytic shellfish poison (red tide) has not dissipated yet.
BFAR Ilocos Regional Director Nestor Domenden said the BFAR issued the red tide alert on September 24.
“Two consecutive tests showed that the red tide was gone. But the third test conducted showed the poison was back,” Domenden said.
The BFAR lifts the ban on shellfish if three consecutive tests for red tide turn negative,” he said.
The bulletin advised against harvesting, marketing and eating of all types of shellfish and alamang (small shrimps) gathered at the city waters are not safe for human consumption.
But squid, shrimp and crabs are safe to eat as long as these are fresh and washed thoroughly, and their internal organs and intestines are removed before cooking.
