Puerto Princesa Bay is still positive for red tide based on the latest shellfish bulletin issued by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resource (BFAR).
The latest laboratory results conducted show that shellfishes collected at the Puerto Princesa Bay remain unsafe for consumption.
BFAR said that all types of shellfish are still not safe for human consumption.
“All types of shellfish and Acetes s. or alamang gathered from the areas stated above are not safe for human consumption. Fish, squids, 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,” the advisory said.
The coastal waters of Dauis and Tagbilaran City in Bohol, Irong-Irong Bay in Western Samar, Cancato Bay, Tacloban City in Leyte and Lianga Bay in Surigao del Sur are also positive for paralytic shellfish poison that is beyond the regulatory limit.
