Default Red Tide Question

If Red Tide affects shellfish, i.e. clams then wouldn't that cross contaminate stripes, as they're known for eating clams?

Unless you're actually eating the guts of the fish you're fine. The meat is not affected. The below is from an old thread I dug up from last time we had Red Tide issues here. ..... I miss TonyDB.....

There have been many fish kills reported up and down the east coast this year do to the red tide.....whales, dolphins and other fish. Whales are filter feeders. They die directly from ingesting G. Brevis, a dynoflagulate that predominately is the red tide. Dolphins (and other fish) die because they eat the whole fish, organs included. Lobsters, shrimp, and fish (stripers included) are safe for human consumption providing you don't eat the organs (livers, brains...).

I found an article that actually showed up in the Boston Globe regarding air-born neurotoxins (cells of G.brevis which burst do to wave activity) that could pose a hazard to some people.
