Fukushima’s Fishermen Net Fear, not Food

December 3, 2011

One of the most disturbing aspects of the Fukushima accident is the ongoing spread of contamination thru the ocean food chain. Starting at the bottom with smaller species, the radioactive elements are gradually finding their way into larger, and more commercially critical, species.

  2. What these fishermen need is a campaign led by people who actually understand some nuclear physics and the effects of radiation on the human body, guided by something other than scare stories.

    I’d like to see accurate reports providing the amount of radiation in the fish. We could assess the actual level of risk (which is probably minuscule), and then we could decide for ourselves.

    I’d be happy to eat this guy’s fish, and so would a whole lot of people. These guys need a break.

    I’m sure the anti-nuclear folk would be happy to see others taking on the risk so they don’t have to, and helping those in need. Everybody wins.

    Fishmongering, not fearmongering!

    Alex why do you have to be so insulting…this is the place for science…the facts only..stop the name calling..it means your argument is weak

    Reality check here, http://www.theoildrum.com/node/4971 Thorium fueled LFTR reactors much safer. Also, Google Tsinghua University, China, pebble bed gas reactors. Had these been installed at Fuckoshima, no nuclear “meltdown” could occur, hence no disaster. Fissioning of Uranium must be stopped world wide. This is the evil that produces the poisons, the humanocidal plutonium. Thorium reactors will power the new Pan Eurasian Empire we see rising in the East as we speak. Japan, now lost to accumulating, leaking and deadly emissions is lost.
    80% Americans live within 40 miles of a reactor. American reactors currently storing up to 4 times their design capacities for “Spent Fuel” the ideal material for “Dirty bombs” We are assured however that there can be no accidents in the U.S. of A. 9/11 anybody? All these American reactors are of the Fuckoshima design.
    Fuckoshima need not have happened. It is the direct result of crooked, Vulture Capitalism.
    Radioactive fish, cumulative poison, rising world wide background radiation, willful flogging of unsafe humanocidal Uranium fissioning reactors by America, Siemens of Germany washes its hands, and France hopelessly entwined. What of the new Pan Eurasian Empire? Will China install safer Thorium fueled reactors? Decades to the answers now. Fish? The “Canary in the Gold mine?”


  5. […] Fishing industries have been destroyed Like farming, generations-old fishing villages have been devastated as radiation contaminated fishing zones prevent these fishermen and their associated industries from recovering from the devastation of the quake and tsunami.  Contamination is getting stuck in the seafloor, not flowing away. As the radioactive poisons travel up the food chain, it is concentrated into larger fish such as tuna, so important to Japan’s fishing industries. […]
