The agency explained that all types of shellfish and alamang that can be found in those areas are not safe for human consumption. However, fish, crabs, squid, and shrimps are safe for eating, but first, they need to be washed thoroughly before cooking.

Meanwhile, the shellfishes at the coastal waters of Daram Island, Irong-Irong Bay, Maqueda Bay, Villareal Bay, and Cambatutay Bay in Western Samar are still positive for paralytic shellfish poison.

The coastal waters of Maratinao Bay in Eastern Samar, Carigara Bay in Leyte, Iner Malampaya Sound, Taytay and Puerto Princesa Bay, Puerto Princesa City in Palawan, and the waters of Mandaon in Masbate were still affected by shellfish poison.
