SHELLFISH from Anda and Bolinao are now safe to eat.
The Bureau of Fishery and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) lifted last April 25 the red tide advisory along the coastal waters of these two towns following a series of negative results on marine samples.
BFAR Regional Director Nestor Domenden said the results showed that samples taken from the two areas now show negative of Paralyctic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP).
The red tide ban was in effect for two months, which has significantly affected the livelihood of shellfish farmers.
Domenden said with the lifting of the ban, shellfish can now again be harvested and sold from the two areas.
Meanwhile, the BFAR, in coordination with the concerned local government units, is continuously conducting regular monitoring activities in key coastal waters in Pangasinan to safeguard public health and to promote the shellfish industry.—LM
