Moluscos de la costa bonaerense

The  government of the province of Buenos Aires  reported that  commercial, artisanal or tourist extraction of bivalve molluscs  (cockles, mussels, clams)  and gastropods  (  caracoles ) in the area bounded by coastal points from Punta Piedra, north of Samborombón Bay, and south to the southern limit of the city of  Mar del Plata .

As a result of the analyses carried out on bivalve molluscs by the Mar del Plata Laboratory of the National Service  for Agrofood Health and Quality (SENASA), a negative result was obtained to the diarrheal toxin test of molluscs , in accordance with those of marine phytoplankton, carried out in Laboratory of Phycology  of the National University of La Plata , where cells of the species producing diarrheal toxin were not recorded in the quantitative samples of mollusk.

According to a statement from the Buenos Aires Ministry of  Agribusiness  , “These results are framed as a health condition required by the Resolution 829/06 of SENASA for the lifting of vedas and therefore it was considered necessary  to restore the commercial extraction of these bivalve molluscs and gastropods .”
