Red Tide Detected on West Coast

Red Tide Detected on West Coast

Gansbaai Courant

The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) is currently monitoring an algal bloom detected on the West Coast and has dispatched its scientists to the area to assess its extent and scope. 

This team  will  also  determine  which dinoflagellate is associated with the bloom. Until DAFF has the results, the public is cautioned against the collection for consumption of mussels, oysters, clams, bait and any other filter feeding shellfish north of Cape Columbine, as these organisms could be highly toxic and extremely dangerous.
