Researchers are predicting a “moderate” red tide this year, which they say could close shellfish beds on 126 to 250 miles of New England coastline.
New Hampshire authorities say concerns about “red tide” have led to the closing of Atlantic coastal waters and the Hampton and Seabrook Harbor to shellfishing.
The state has closed areas of the Nauset Marsh system between Orleans and Eastham on Cape Cod to shellfishing because of concerns about toxic “red tide.”
Health officials are warning consumers not to eat shellfish from a marsh between Orleans and Eastham on Cape Cod because it may contain a dangerous nerve poison.
Scientists are predicting a “moderate” bloom of the toxic red tide in New England this summer, and say the same factors that held it in check last year could suppress it again. The naturally-occurring algae produces a toxin that shellfish absorb, making them unsafe for people to eat, though it’s not a danger to the animal.
