This week we have results to share from our wild shellfish toxin testing program. Blue mussels collected from China Poot on July 16th were below the regulatory limit for saxitoxins, the toxin that can lead to Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP).
Commercially harvested shellfish are monitored by DEC and considered safe for consumption.
Additional information, including qualitative analysis of phytoplankton data, is available in the Phytoplankton Update for Jul. 31st – Aug. 6th.
