Scientists from Fukushima are warning the public that eating fish from the Pacific Ocean should now be over. The Japanese laboratories who are analyzing seawater, marine sediments and fish samples near the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant produced reliable data as reported by IAEA.

It has been five years since the test operations began on the fishing grounds located in the Fukushima Prefecture. After the power plant was hit by a tsunami, its three reactors melt down and four reactors exploded. These fishing grounds were affected by the disaster that happened at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant run by Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc.

Is It Safe?

According to one of the scientists from Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings or TEPCO, the laboratory in charge of monitoring the plant, data shown that the radiation pouring into the Pacific Ocean was nonstop for the past six years.

The contaminated waters of the Pacific Ocean were believed to have traces of cesium, radioactive iodine, plutonium, strontium-89, and strontium-90.

TEPCO is using underwater robots to decontaminate the area and make it habitable again. These robots were mounted with cameras to explore the site.

Scary Findings

Furthermore, there were a new study and researches last June 2015 also revealed that there were fishes caught on the West coast of United States and Canada was tested positive for radiation technology.

The species were loaded with Cesium -137 and Strontium 090, both radioactive. Meanwhile, when eaten by a human, these radioactive elements can get deposited in human bones. The radiations will also wreak havoc on the bone marrow and can cause bone and blood cancers, including the deadly Leukemia.

In addition, the radiations found in the seafood were so strong that the caught Pacific Herring, Alaskan Salmon, and Canadian Whitefish were found bloody. Most of all, these fishes were also found with cancerous tumors all over their bodies.
