The haul of Sagami bay is significantly decreasing for unknown reason

The haul of Sagami bay has been significantly decreased since last Autumn.
Sagami bay is south offshore of Kanagawa prefecture, where used to be famous for the variety of fish.

The halt of the west part of Sagami bay was less than 1/3 in the end of 2012. Fishers state it has never been this bad.

Some of the experts suggest it might be because the Japan Current moved to offshore, but the actual reason is not identified.

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.
