Marine products company in Miyagi restarted selling canned Pacific Saury after 2 years blank

Kinoya ishinomaki marine products company in Ishinomaki city Miyagi restarted selling canned Pacific Saury (Cololabis saira).
Since 311, they have not been shipping it due to the equipment damaged by Tsunami.
In July of 2011, Russia banned importing Pacific saury from Japan. [Link]
On 6/13/2012, China returned 24 tones of Pacific saury to Japan too. It was because they measured excessive cadmium from the shipped saury, which Ag-110m turns to by beta-decay. [Link]

Une pêcherie du Miyagi a recommencé à vendre du Balaou du Pacifique en conserve après 2 années blanches

La Kinoya ishinomaki marine products company de la ville d’Ishinomaki dans la préfecture de Miyagi a repris ses ventes de conserves de Balaou du Pacifique (Cololabis saira).
Depuis le 11-3, ils n’avaient rien pu expédier parce que le tsunami avait détruit leurs équipements.
En juillet 2011, la Russie avait interdit l’import du Balaou du Pacifique du Japon. [Lien]
Le 13 juin 2012, la Chine aussi avait renvoyé au Japon 24 tonnes de Balaous du Pacifique. Ceci parce qu’ils leur avaient trouvé du cadmium en quantité excessive, cadmium qui provient de la désintégration de l’Ag-110m par émission de particules bêta. [Lien]


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.
