Safe Shellfish Video

It’s easy to get confused about where and how to test your shellfish for possible toxins, so we made a video with our partners at Artchange Inc. to help! This film walks you through how toxins that cause Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning get into your food, how to properly take care of shellfish you’d like to get tested, and how to deliver those shellfish to the Sitka Tribe of Alaska’s Environmental Research Lab. We hope to see you here soon!
