Shipment restriction of fish extended to Aomori, 380km from Fukushima plant

Back in June, they measured 116 Bq/Kg of cesium from Pacific cod fished offshore Hachinohe.
Aomori prefecture requested the local fishery cooperation for selt-imposed control.
It was lifted at the end of July, but they measured 132.7 Bq/Kg of cesium on 8/9/2012 again.
They ended up restricting shipment of Pacific cod from Aomori for the first time since 311.

It is questionable why it is only Pacific cod.
