Russia predicted saury contamination before China banned importing from Japan

On 11/5/2012, Fukushima Diary reported China refused importing Japanese frozen saury for excessive cadmium. [Link]

However, Russia had already banned importing Pacific saury (Cololabis saira) from Japan in late July of 2011 already.

They stated it was clearly because of the radiation from Fukushima accident.

In 2009, 20% of all the Pacific saury haul (300,000 tones) was shipped to Russia, which was 80% of the total exports. (4,090,000,000JPY, 2010)

La Russie avait prédit la contamination du balaou du Pacifique avant que la Chine s’en interdise l’import depuis le Japon

Le 5 novembre 2012, le Fukushima Diary avait rapporté que la Chine refusait l’importation de balaous (Cololabis saira) congelés japonais pour présence excessive de cadmium. [Lien]

Toutefois, la Russie avait déjà interdit les importations japonaises de balaous du Pacifique fin juillet 2011.

Ils affirmaient clairement que c’était à cause de la radioactivité de l’accident de Fukushima.

En 2009, 20% des expéditions de balaous du Pacifique (300,000 tonnes) étaient à destination de la Russie qui représentait 80% du total des exports. (4 090 000 000 de yens, en 2010)

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.
