High level of Cesium-134/137 was detected from fish outside of Fukushima plant port, according to Tepco.

The report was published on 1/20/2015. The sample was the muscle part of “Angel Shark” caught in the beginning of last December.

Cesium-134/137 density was 209 Bq/Kg. This is over double as the food safety limit in Japan.


The sampling location was 3km offshore of Fukushima plant area. Radioactive contamination is assumed to be spreading in the Pacific and biological concentration is progressing.

The English version of this report has not been published yet.

Selon Tepco, une forte radioactivité en césium-134/137 a été relevée dans un poisson de l’extérieur du port de la centrale de Fukushima.

Le rapport a été publié le 20 janvier 2015. L’échantillon est un bout de muscle d’un “Squatina” pris début décembre dernier.
La radioactivité en césium 134/137 était à 209 Bq/kg. C’est plus du double de la dose limite de sécurité alimentaire du Japon.

Le lieu d’échantillonnage était à 3 km au large de la zone de la centrale de Fukushima. La contamination radioactive est supposée se disperser dans le Pacifique et la concentration dans les organismes progresse.

La version anglaise de ce rapport n’est pas encore publiée.


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.
