Fish off Japan all Fuku'ed up

Tokyo Electric Power Company is measuring radiation exposure in fish and shellfish caught within 20 kilometers of the troubled plant from March this year....

The utility says it detected 38,000 becquerels per kilogram of radioactive cesium in a rock trout caught about 1 kilometer off Minamisoma City on August 1st.

The level is 380 times the government safety limit, and the highest so far in the firm's surveys in the area. The previous high was 18.8 times.

The operator also says it found radioactive cesium exceeding the safety limit in 9 kinds of fish and shellfish.

Enjoy that Northwest salmon while you can.

May have to equip boats with "fish avoiders" now. And ain't this (from December 2011) just grand? --

Sad, just sad.

This is by far the largest nuclear disaster in history, and yet the lapdog press barely a mention these days.
