WA – Health scare – ‘toxic’ fish, crabs or shellfish

Mindarie warning: WA Department of Health tells public not to eat ‘toxic’ fish, crabs or shellfish

The Department of Health has warned people against eating fish, crabs or shellfish collected from Mindarie Marina – because of fears of paralytic poisoning.
The department’s environmental health director Jim Dodds said a potentially toxic microscopic algae called “Alexandrium spp” had been detected during recent testing.

Anyone who has consumed any of the fish caught recreationally is urged to seek urgent medical help as the outcome can be muscular paralysis.
