Shellfish biotoxin alert: Port Underwood

The Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI) has issued a shellfish biotoxin alert for Port Underwood on the east coast of the Marlborough Sounds.

People are advised not to collect or eat shellfish from this area. This includes mussels, oysters, tuatua, pipi, toheroa, cockles, scallops, catseyes, kina and all other bivalve shellfish.

Cooking shellfish does not remove the toxin, which can cause diarrhetic shellfish poisoning.
