ABC Australia : Fukushima radiation kills fishing industry

Posted June 25, 2012 15:16:00

Fishermen in the Fukushima area, the site of the greatest single radiation contamination of the ocean in history, fear their industry is ruined. While boats still go to sea, their catches are being withheld from sale and instead the fish is sent for analysis. And it’s not just Japanese fishermen recording radioactive hauls. Contamination is turning up thousands of kilometres away in fish caught on the other side of the Pacific Ocean.

    The Japanese People are like the Pacific Ocean fish, they have no say in how much Japan spreads radioactive pollution…

    Hi again Paul,

    Woolworths tins tuna say its Skipjack from West Pacific. (no dates on tins) Can only presume for big fishing concerns its business as usual. Is anyone measuring the tinned tuna being sold here in Adelaide?

    Best regards,
