Gathering shellfish to eat is a favorite pastime, but it can be fatal if the shellfish are contaminated with paralytic shellfish toxin. This two-sided poster shows the clam, mussel, scallop, cockle, and oyster species commonly found on Alaska's shores. Information is included on distribution, habitat, size, identifying characteristics, and potential PSP toxicity of each species. It is a quick reference on how to recognize symptoms of PSP and provide first aid to victims.
