Don't eat pipis harvested near Venus Bay

  Published June 9th, 2017

DEDJTR and DHHS advise not to eat pipis harvested near Venus Bay

The Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources (DEDJTR)  and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) have issued a community advisory recommending that recreational fishers not eat pipis harvested near Venus Bay.

This advisory is in response to a high Diarrhetic Shellfish Poisoning (DSP) toxin finding in a sample of pipis from the area.
A working group comprised of Fisheries Victoria, DHHS, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning and Parks Victoria is managing the response to the finding.

This advisory is precautionary and will be in place while sampling and analysis are undertaken over the coming weeks.
There is no reason to be concerned about consuming finfish such as King George whiting harvested in the Venus Bay area.
Shellfish bought from retail or wholesale sources including aquaculture farms is safe to eat as they are regularly monitored for contaminants. Commercial harvesting and sale for human consumption is not permitted when conditions lead to unsafe levels of toxins in pipis.
