MOE “Freshwater fish accumulate more cesium than marine products”


According to the research of Ministry of the environment from December to February, freshwater fish accumulate more cesium than marine products.

MOE compared the contamination of aquatic organisms taken at 8 points of river, lake and sea.
Comparing result is like this below,

<Sea> (Offshore Iwaki city)
Slime flounder, Suzuki : 260 Bq/Kg

<Fresh water> (Iidatemura ~ Minamisoma)
Goby : 2,600 Bq/Kg
Plecoptera (Aquatic insects) : 330 ~ 670 Bq/Kg

About this site

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.
