In this study, we examined bacteriological and toxicological safety of shellfish produced in the Narodo area from January 2015 to December 2017. The sampling stations for this study were composed of 3 stations for oyster and 2 stations for short neck clam. The range of total coliform, fecal coliform and E. coli levels for 62 oyster samples was < 18-3,500, < 18-230 and < 18-170 MPN/100 g respectively. That for 72 short neck clam samples was < 18-5,400, < 18-330 and < 18-220 MPN/100 g respectively. And Salmonella sp. and Shigella spp. were not detected in all samples. Also paralytic shellfish toxin was not detected and diarrhetic shellfish toxin was detected below the limit of quantification. These results indicate that shellfish produced in Narodo area meets the standard of shellfish hygiene of Food Sanitation Act and assessed to be the Grade A of EU criteria.
