Banned Ria Formosa shellfish consumption fails to poison a single customer

Published on 19/07/2017

Olhão’s commercial fishing association has pointed out that, despite the long-term ban on harvesting shellfish in the Ria Formosa area due to the alleged presence of toxins, it is not aware that the local population is suffering from widespread poisoning from consuming illicit supplies.

The commercial fishing sector is banned from harvesting shellfish but individual pickers who hawk buckets of shellfish in the backstreets of the city have yet to induce an outbreak of diarrhea, sweating and stomach cramps among willing buyers.
