Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning

 

With minus tides coming up over the Fourth of July weekend, Alaska Sea Grant would like to remind the Kodiak community that Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning remains a serious risk in personally harvested shellfish, including all bivalves and the gut content of crab.

We advise residents to not eat personally harvested clams and mussels and to properly section and clean crab before cooking.

For more information call Julie Matweyou at the Kodiak Seafood and Marine Science Center (907) 486-1514 or email julie.matweyou@alaska.edu. Online information can be found at http://seagrant.uaf.edu/features/PSP/psp_page.html
