Shellfish warning lifted Mohakatino - Motunui in Taranaki


10 January 2013

The Taranaki District Health Board today lifted a public health warning against collecting or consuming shellfish from Mohakatino down to Motunui.

Signage is currently being removed from coastline but regular testing of shellfish will continue to ensure that any future increases in toxin levels are detected promptly.

We would like to thank the public for their co-operation during the events.

For more information about the safety of the shellfish, people can contact a Health Protection Officer toll free at 0508 834 274.
