Negros Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. lifted the public warning on harvesting, selling and consuming shellfish in the cities of Bacolod, Cadiz Silay, Victorias and EB Magalona, in a seafood safety bulletin released yesterday.
The bulletin said that, although the seawater samples collected from the coastal waters of the cities and municipality still contain they algal species that causes red tide, the shellfish samples collected contained toxins below the regulatory limit.
The seawater samples were tested by the Provincial Bio-Toxin Testing Center of the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist, and the shellfish meat samples were tested in the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Central Office. The samples were sent to BFAR last Tuesday.
The Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod has approved a resolution authorizing acting Bacolod Mayor Greg Gasataya to enter into and sign the memorandum of agreement between the City of Bacolod and the Department of Public Works and Highways-Bridges Management Cluster-Unified Project Management Office for the construction of a flyover at Araneta Street and Magsaysay Avenue in Bacolod City.
Lea Delfinado will sign the MOA in behalf of the DPWH-BMC-UPMO represented by Estrella Villar, DPWH-Negros Island Office project director, while the city will be represented by Gasataya.
