Kesennuma Miyagi, where got the worst damage of Tsunami in 311, restarted oyster farm but the shells grow unusually fast.
They reopened the farm last June after having the port completely destroyed by Tsunami. The oyster was 1~2cm at the time but they have already grown to be about 10cm, which is as double fast as usual.
At average, it takes 2 years but they are already starting to sell them from 1/19/2012.
Fisher’s experiment station of Kesennuma thinks it might be because the rivals of oyster died or nitrogen nutrition might have flown from ground soil by Tsunami. Nobody has considered the risk of radiation.
This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
