    0

    THE Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) has issued a warning against eating shellfish gathered from the coastal waters of Bataan, Mandaon in Masbate, and Irong-Irong Bay in Western Samar which were tested positive for red tide toxin. BFAR Director Asis Perez said laboratory tests results showed that shellfish and “alamang” harvested from the Bataan coastal waters (Mariveles, Limay, Orion, Pilar, Balanga, Orani, Abucay and Samal), as well as Mandaon in Masbate and Irong-Irong Bay in Western Samar are not safe to eat. He said fish, squids and crabs are safe to eat provided that they are fresh and washed thoroughly, and internal organs such as gills and intestines are removed before cooking.
