‘Dangerous’ Domoic Acid Levels Prompt Seafood Warning in California

Recommended Posts

Due to “dangerous levels” of domoic acid found in some species, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) is advising consumers not to eat recreationally harvested mussels and clams, commercially or recreationally caught anchovy and sardines, or the internal organs of commercially or recreationally caught crab taken from Monterey and Santa Cruz counties.

Department officials are working with commercial fisherman in the area to ensure that recently harvested anchovy and sardines were not distributed into the human food supply.

Of course this has nothing to do with Fukushima.

For a change glad to be on the east coast - not that I should trust the safety of bottom feeders, which the local Delmarva economy runs on either. :1XqXnoz:

I lived in Washington state for years and remember the red tides with in the Strait of Juan de Fuca and it's many coves and inland waters  . The warnings were stern to avoid the beaches and not to eat anything from them; domoic acid is toxic it can kill sea life and even humans . If it don't kill you it can give you brain damage . This along with Fukushima at this time of the year will not be a good thing .

I love sea food but now days in self defense maybe a geiger counter and a toxicity tester at the supper market would be a good idea .
