6 chairmans and 50 staff from fishery cooperative held a meeting in Iwaki city [LINK] on 6/18 and decided to restart fishing for sale offshore of Minamisoma city. On 6/14, they fished North Pacific giant octopus, Octopus conispadiceus, and whelk and no radiation was measured from all those samples.
They haven’t fished for one year and 3 months since 311.
They state they prepared the proper radiation measurement system and confirmed the safety of those fishery products, will start selling those 3 kinds of the marine products.
Mr. Nanbu, the chairman of Soma Futaba fishery cooperative comments, “we are looking forward to restarting to fish. This is our first step. We are sure that consumers can be reassured with our marine products.” Mr. Nozaki, the chairman of Fukushima fishery cooperation talks, “this is an experimental fishing, which is not profitable yet, but we are going to try to restart it step by step.”
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.
