Pangasinan is red tide-free – BFAR

THE Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) said shellfishes gathered from Alaminos City, Bani, Bolinao, Anda and Sual in Pangasinan “are still free from the toxic red tide and are safe for human consumption”.

BFAR’s Shellfish Bulletin No. 19 issued on June 22, 2017 said laboratory analyses showed that crabs, shrimps, and seashells like mussels and oysters gathered from the coastal areas in western Pangasinan are red tide-free.

BFAR Region 1 Director Nestor Domenden said as a precautionary measure, advised local governments to require their market inspectors and quarantine officers to demand traders for their “Auxiliary Invoice” or Local Transport Permit issued by BFAR for all fish and fishery products including seashells before these are unloaded and marketed.
