HAB Report

Welcome to the SEATOR shellfish advisory page!

This page is updated as soon as we have new shellfish toxin information. Our advisories are based on shellfish and phytoplankton observations at each listed location. We follow the FDA regulatory limits of 80 ug toxin/100 g shellfish tissue for paralytic shellfish toxins and 20 ppm for domoic acid. We do not recommend consuming shellfish with higher levels of toxin.

A few notes of caution when using this tool

  • This data is not”certified”. Shellfish harvesting will always be at your own risk.
  • Data is site-specific and time sensitive. Pay attention to locations and sample dates.
  • Some shellfish species will remain toxic long after an algal bloom is over! Know your shellfish species and pay attention to species-specific advisories.
  • Conditions may change rapidly, especially in the summer. Check frequently and contact SEATOR with questions at seator@sitkatribe-nsn.gov.
