Eastern Visayas residents warned not to eat shellfish harvested from three bays due to red tide

Eastern Visayas fishermen and/or residents are warned not to catch and/or eat shellfish and "alamang" gathered from three bays which have been hit by red tide.

Shellfish ban was implemented in Carigara Bay, Irong Irong Bay, and Cambatutay Bay.

“Seawater samples collected along these areas are positive of paralytic shellfish poisoning-causing organism that is beyond the regulatory limit,” said Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) Regional Director Juan Albaladejo.

Coastal areas in Eastern Visayas that are free of toxic red tide organisms are Cacabato Bay, San Pedro Bay, Ormoc Bay, Sogod Bay, Villareal Bay, Matarinao Bay and Maqueda Bay.

The BFAR further stated that fish, squid, 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.
