From the report of Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare published on 8/24/2015, significant density of Cs-134/137 was detected from all of 9 pond smelt samples.

The sampling locations were Gunma prefecture. The samples were collected this August.

Because Cs-134 was detected from 8 of these 9 samples, it is clearly from Fukushima accident.

The highest reading was 62 Bq/Kg.

The report reads these samples were not for sale however it shows radioactive material from Fukushima plant is still accumulated in local aquatic products.

Selon un rapport du ministère de la Santé, du Travail et des Affaires Sociales publié le 24 août 2015, une radioactivité importante en Cs-134/137 a été relevée dans l’ensemble des 9 échantillons d’éperlans.

Le site d’échantillonnage est dans la préfecture de Gunma. Les échantillons ont été prélevés en août.
C’est clairement du à l’accident de Fukushima parce que du Cs-134 a été relevé dans 8 de ces 9 échantillons.
Le record a été de 62 Bq/kg.

Le rapport dit que ces échantillons ne sont pas destinés à la vente mais il montre qu’il y a toujours des matières radioactives de la centrale de Fukushima accumulées dans les produits aquatiques locaux.


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.
