Une langoustine bizarrement colorée prise au large de Shizuoka – Photo


Le 28 décembre 2014, le directeur de l’Aquarium de Numazu Deepblue Aquarium (Grand Bleu de Numazu) a publié sur Twitter une photo d’une langoustine aux couleurs étranges.

Il déclare qu’un pêcheur local était parti pêcher des Glyphocrangonidae pour la dernière fois de l’année. La langoustine de la photo a l’air d’être d’une autre espèce et a été prise par hasard. C’est dans l’Est de la préfecture de Shizuoka.
Il déclare qu’il pêche toujours dans cette région et qu’il n’a jamais vu une telle langoustine.
Le type de langoustine n’est pas encore établi.

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.
