Official: Expect Airborne Radiation Releases From Fukushima To INCREASE – Seafood Catches Off U.S. Pacific Coast More Likely To Be Contaminated Than Ones Far Closer To Japan

Official: Expect airborne radiation releases from Fukushima to increase — Seafood catches off U.S. Pacific coast more likely to be contaminated than ones far closer to Japan — ‘Gravest danger’ to public is if they eat these products (ENENews, Dec 25, 2013):

Maxim Shingarkin, Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Natural Resources (Lower House of the Federal Assembly of Russia), Dec. 25, 2013: “Because of the world ocean currents, the seafood that’s caught off the US Pacific coast is more likely to contain radionuclides than the seafood in the Sea of Okhotsk, which is by far closer to Japan. It is these marine products that may find their way to the tables of different countries’ residents that pose the gravest danger. […] not all fuel has been removed from the damaged nuclear reactors yet. We can therefore expect atmospheric radiation releases as a result of the heating up of reactors.”

Vladimir Slivyak, lecturer at the Russia’s National Research University Higher School of Economics and co-chairman of Ekozashchita, Dec. 25, 2013: “Russia has been considering setting limits on catching marine products and fish in the Far East. But no restrictions have officially been imposed thus far, to the best of my knowledge. But some moves may eventually be made. […] We are likely to learn about the detailed consequences of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in a matter of 10 to 15 years. It is clear that a great deal of fisheries, water grass areas and actually anything in the ocean has been contaminated. Fukushima radiation is understandably spreading across the world. It is obvious that large areas have been contaminated in Japan. But it will take years of research to get a more detailed picture of the Fukushima disaster consequences.”
