56,000 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 still measured from fish caught in Fukushima plant port / 560 × of safety limit

On 6/17/2015, Tepco announced they detected 56,000 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 from spotbelly rockfish caught in Fukushima plant port.

This is 560 times much as the safety limit and the sample was collected near the central area of the port. Sampling date was 5/12/2015.

The second highest reading was 21,600 Bq/Kg.

The density of other nuclides such as Strontium-90 or Tritium wasn’t announced.

Toujours 56 000 Bq/kg de Cs 134/137 dans des poissons du port de la centrale : 560 × la limite de sécurité


Le 17 juin 2015, Tepco annonce avoir relevé 56 000 Bq/kg de Cs 134/137 dans une sébaste à ventre tacheté prise dans le port de la centrale de Fukushima.

C’est 560 fois la limite de sécurité. L’échantillon a été pris au centre du port le 12 mai 2015.
Le second record est de 21 600 Bq/kg.
La radioactivité des autres nucléides comme le strontium 90 ou le Tritium n’est pas communiquée.

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.
