Cesium from tuna fished in west coast of America

On 5/28/2012, researching team of Stanford university published cesium was measured from Bluefin tuna of American west coast on Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.

It was from 15 bluefin tuna fished last August. 4Bq/kg of cesium 134 and 6.3Bq/kg of cesium 137 were measured, which is clearly from Fukushima plants.
They assume those bluefin tuna were near Japan when 311 happened and moved to the west coast of America with ocean currents.
