Shellfish warnings have been removed for the area between Waitarere Beach in the north to Hokio Beach in the south.
 
Thousands of dead and dying shellfish were washed up on the beaches in  early March. An alert was issued and people warned not to eat any shellfish washed up on the beach outside this area.

However, after further investigation no toxins have been found and the warning has been removed.
