MANILA, Philippines — The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) has imposed a shellfish ban in six provinces.

In shellfish bulletin 35, BFAR said shellfish gathered from Inner Malampaya Sound, Taytay and Puerto Princesa Bays in Palawan; Irong-Irong in Eastern Samar, Carigara in Leyte and Mandaon in Masbate were found positive for paralytic shellfish poison that is beyond the regulatory limit.

All types of shellfish gathered in the areas are not safe for human consumption.

The BFAR said fish, squid, shrimp and crab are safe to eat provided they are fresh, washed thoroughly and internal organs are removed before cooking.
