    Toxic shellfish warning for Northland

    The Ministry for Primary Industries has issued a warning against eating shellfish taken from a part of the Northland coast.


    A warning has been issued against eating shellfish collected from the Northland east coast between Cape Brett and Taiharuru Head.

    The biotoxin alert relates to the non-commercial taking of mussels, oysters, tuatua, pipi, toheroa, cockles, scallops, catseyes, kina (sea urchin) and all other bivalve shellfish.

    Paua, crab and crayfish may still be eaten if the gut has been completely removed before cooking, the Ministry for Primary Industries says.

    The warning follows similar ones in place for Bay of Plenty between Cape Runaway and the Tarawera River mouth, and for Canterbury between the Ashburton River and Gore Bay.
