• BFAR ORDERS SHELLFISH BAN IN ZAMBOANGA DEL SUR, BATAAN

    0

    The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) imposed a shellfish ban in some parts of Zamboanga del Sur and Bataan due to the lingering presence of red tide. BFAR Shellfish Bulletin 30 issued on December 16 reported that shellfish collected at Damanquillas Bay in Zamboanga Del Sur and in the coastal waters off Mariveles, Limay, Orion, Pilar, Balanga, Orani, Abucay and Samal in Bataan are still positive for paralytic shellfish poison that is beyond the regulatory limits. Because of this, BFAR prohibited the harvesting, selling, transporting and eating of all types of shellfish and alamang (Acetes sp.) in these areas because they are not safe for human consumption.
