apan Finds Toxic Fish, As Ocean Radiation Soars To 7.5 Million Times Legal Limit
A fish was caught on Friday midway between Fukushima and Tokyo that contained dangerously high levels of radioactive iodine and high levels of cesium.
This catch has prompted Japan to announce its first legal limits for radiation in fish, according to theAP. Previously Japan had said it was enough to ban fishing in the near proximity of the nuclear plant.
Japan also just announced a huge surge in ocean contamination, as radioactive iodine-131 at 7.5 million times the legal limit was found near the plant, according toJapan Times. Yesterday, levels were only 5 million times the legal limit.
