Toxi Shellfish Warning Reinstated

Friday, 6 May 2011 12:38 p.m.

The toxic shellfish warning that was lifted in March this year has been reinstated for part of the Bay of Plenty coastline.

People are advised not to collect and eat shellfish from anywhere along the coastline from Mount Maunganui in the Western Bay of Plenty to the Whakatane Heads in the Eastern Bay of Plenty.  This area includes Papamoa, Maketu, Pukehina and also applies to all inshore islands and estuary areas within this stretch of coast.
