370 Bq/Kg of Cesium-134 / 137 from 5 ~ 6 km offshore Fukushima plant


From Tepco’s fish contamination report released on 7/18/2014, 370 Bq/Kg of Cesium-134 / 137 was measured from fish outside of Fukushima plant port.
It’s “Okamejei“, a type of ray fish. The sampling date was 6/15/2014.

Tepco reports it was fished approx. 4km offshore of Kumagawa-river. It is assumed to be 5~6 km from Fukushima plant port.

Also 178 Bq/Kg of Cesium-134/137 was measured from another Okamejei sample taken outside of Fukushima plant port.
It is not clear how many other measurement results are covered up, however at least it is shown that Fukushima plant is still contaminating the creatures outside of its port.
