On 4/17/2015, Tepco published the monthly seafood contamination report of Fukushima plant port. However the report contained only 10 samples data of 5 kinds of seafood. The highest reading of Cs-134/137 was 3,200 Bq/Kg.


Tepco is to collect marine products in Fukushima plant port to analyze the sea contamination situation every month.

They are suppose to publish the analysis report, however the process of how they choose which sample data to publish is still in a black box.


Compared to the report of April. 2014, the samples are less than half and also the kinds of seafood are nearly half.

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.
