Monitoring work undertaken on behalf of Food Standards Scotland has identified raised levels of shellfish toxins in East Loch Roag.

Eating shellfish such as mussels, cockles, or razor fish from these areas may pose a risk to human health.

Commercial shellfish harvesters in these areas have been contacted by Comhairle nan Eilean Siar and steps have been taken to postpone harvesting until algae levels subside.

It is a sensible precaution to avoid eating shellfish from the loch until further notice, according to Comhairle nan Eilean Siar.
