Fukushima fisheries to resume trial fishing after samples prove safe

Test fishing activities in the ocean near Fukushima have detected either NO radioactivity or very little, well below the acceptable limits. 

The Fukushima Prefectural Federation of Fisheries Cooperative Associations said Tuesday that “through tests we know the radioactive levels of the fish are not an issue and that they are safe.”

Out of 100 fish and seafood products tested, 95 were clear of radioactive substances and the remaining five contained less than one-tenth of the government’s limit of 100 becquerels for food products, the fishing co-op said.
