Aomori prefecture expects to restart shipping cod by collecting 50 ok samples

Japanese government is restricting the shipment of Pacific cod from Aomori prefecture as of 8/27/2012. [Link]

Aomori prefectural government is expecting that they can restart the shipment once they collect 50 samples that they detect cesium of lower than 100 Bq/Kg.
It is not known if there is such a regulation that they can restart shipment with 50 samples.

They are speeding up the radiation measurement of the samples to restart the shipment by 11/1/2012, but it is questionable how close it is to random sampling.


一方で、セシウムの検出量が100 Bq/Kgを下回るサンプルが50集まれば出荷を再開できる、と青森県は期待しています。

La préfecture d’Aomori veut reprendre ses expéditions de morue sur la collecte de 50 échantillons corrects

Le gouvernement nippon interdit les expéditions de morue du Pacifique de la préfecture d’Aomori depuis le 27 août 2012. [Lien]

Les autorités préfectorales d’Aomori se préparent à reprendre ces expéditions dès qu’ils auront eu 50 échantillons ne donnant pas un niveau en césium égal ou supérieur à 100 Bq/kg. On ne sait pas s’il existe une réglementation permettant de reprendre les expéditions sur cette base de 50 échantillons sains.

Ils accélèrent les mesures de radioactivité des échantillons pour reprendre leurs expéditions au 1er novembre 2012 mais on peut s’interroger sur le caractère réellement aléatoire de leur échantillonnage.


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.
