Radioactrive fish reach US West coast


Highly toxic Cesium-134 – the "fingerprint" of Fukushima – was found in Tillamook Bay and Gold Beach, Oregon.

The terrifying discovery was reported by researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

However, radiation levels have not yet peaked as a toxic plume makes its way towards the United States.

The Statesman Journal reported Mr Cullen saying: "It appears that the plume has spread throughout this vast area from Alaska to California.

"As the contamination plume progresses towards our coast we expect levels closer to shore to increase over the coming year."

And from 2013:

Almost two years after the awful nuclear disaster occurred, a fish caught near Fukushima on Friday January 18th had a record-breaking level of radioactive contamination over 2500x the legal limit. TEPCO measured 'Mike the Murasoi' at 254,000 becquerels per kilogram (with the limit for edible seafood at 100 becquerels). As Le Monde reports, the previous record (caught on August 21st 2012) was a mere 25,800 becquerels/kg. As further precautions, TEPCO is installing new nets 20km around the Fukushima Daichi site to avoid highly contaminated fish gettig too far and being consumed by other species. While Mike's family are no doubt distraught (at him being caught and being so radioactive), it appears (somewhat disappointingly) that there is no apparent third eye, lazer fins, legs, or other 'expected' 'blinky' malformations.

Note: Caution a fake news site listed Zero Hedge as a fake news site…The Daily Start (UK) is probably there as well.
