Radiation levels in fish near the nuclear power plant Fukushima higher than normal

The content of radioactive substances in fish in a river near the Japanese nuclear power plant emergency, "Fukushima-1" has exceeded the rate of more than 100 times. This was reported on Saturday, the Ministry of Environment of the country. In trout caught in the river Niida about 20 kilometers from the nuclear plant, cesium was 11.4 thousand becquerels per kilogram for the state norm of a maximum of 100 becquerels.

Other fish in the area also was seriously contaminated by radioactive substances — their content is 3-4 thousand becquerels per kilogram.

A ministry spokesman said that the cesium in freshwater fish in Fukushima is much higher than that of sea-caught her coast. In addition, studies have shown that radiation damage of marine fish is declining rapidly.

As previously reported the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan, the high content of cesium was found in October in nine percent of the fish caught in the ocean in the 20-kilometer zone from the stands on the bank of NPP "Fukushima-1". In June of this year, exceeding the norm of 100 becquerels per kilogram was 30 percent of the catch, and in June of 2011 — every second of fish caught there. Seafood fishing off the coast of Fukushima Prefecture is now banned, ITAR-TASS reported.
