Fukushima will test-fish 7 more kinds of fishery products


Having measured 25,800 Bq/Kg of cesium from greenling, Fukushima is wanting to ship fishery products. They are believing some sorts of fishery products are safe even from the same sea area. (cf. Cesium from 90% of fishery products offshore Fukushima, “Highest reading was 25,800 Bq/kg”)

Fukushima reconstruction association of fishery industry decided to start the test fishing of additional 7 types of products on 8/22/2012. It will be around offshore Soma.

The 7 types include rock fish, hair crab, todarodes and whelk.
It will be officially approved by fishery cooperative on 8/28/2012, test fishing will start in September.

They haven’t measured radiation from these 7 types of products since January, but probably they only check cesium, not strontium.

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.
