First Fukushima Seafood on Sale Since Disaster, Telegraph Says

June 26, 2012

The first seafood caught off the coast of Fukushima, Japan, since last year’s tsunami and subsequent nuclear disaster went on sale, the Daily Telegraph reported, citing the Fukushima Prefecture Fishing Cooperative.

Octopus and whelk caught on Friday went on sale at supermarkets after regular testing for radioactive caesium showed no detectable amounts; flounder, sea bass and other fish can’t be sold yet because they are still showing above the safe limit for radiation, the newspaper said.
