New Zealand – Shellfish biotoxin alert lifted for South Head


The Ministry for Primary Industries today removed the public health warning against collecting shellfish from the North Island West Coast.

This warning was from South Head (Manukau Harbour) to Tirua Point (South of Kawhia) – North Island.  Further sampling of shellfish along this coastline has shown that Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP) toxins are now at safe levels.

Other warnings remain in place for West Coast – Waipapakauri to Kaipara – North Island
