Oyster and linefish in short supply due to Bay red tides

THE tide has turned against oyster stocks in Nelson Mandela Bay, where the delicacy is in short supply following the extensive red tides which have occurred over hundreds of kilometres of the Eastern and southern Cape coastlines.

On Tuesday the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality issued a strong warning around the red tide, large swathes of which invaded massive areas of the Bay’s coastline, and occurred between Port Alfred and Knysna, and against the consumption of shellfish – which can become fatally toxic if exposed to red tide.

Port Elizabeth seafood restaurants canvassed by The Herald yesterday reported although the industry was generally quiet, it was mostly business as usual, with the exception of an oyster and linefish supply problem which had been experienced since December.
