Bioaccumulation concentrates. Policies of dilution are ignored by the reality of the life processes. Fukushima NPP has been leaking into the ocean for a year and half and is continuing to leak.

Aomori halts cod shipments after cesium level spikes
The central government has ordered Aomori Prefecture to suspend shipment of Pacific cod caught near the port of Hachinohe after excessive levels of radioactive cesium have been detected, initiating the first such ban for the prefecture because of the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

Radioactive cesium exceeding the government’s allowable safety level of 100 becquerels per kilogram has been detected twice in cod caught off Hachinohe, the government said Monday.

The government said it limited the suspension to cod caught off Hachinohe because the species’ Pacific habitat is smaller than those of other migratory fish and the cod containing the maximum allowable level of cesium were caught in areas close to each other.
