Shellfish Warning Lifted in All Auckland Areas

Shellfish Warning Lifted in All Auckland Areas

Subsequent to further information received this morning from the Ministry of Primary Industries and Northland DHB, the Auckland Regional Public Health Service confirms a lift of the shellfish public health warning in all areas of the Auckland region.

Recent monitoring results for the Kaipara Harbour now show that PSP (paralytic shellfish poisoning) levels have fallen to non detectable levels, meaning that shellfish collection and consumption is again safe for the public in all of the Auckland Region, including the Kaipara Harbour.

Monitoring of the situation will continue, and the public will be alerted should there again be an increase to unsafe levels.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
