The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CIFA) has deemed fish tested in the wake of the Japan nuclear disaster as radiation free, but will not divulge where samples were taken from.
According to the CFIA, results from 12 fish samples showed minimal detectable levels of the radioactive particles Cesium -134 and Cesium -137. The results are below Health Canada’s “actionable levels,” said CFIA spokesperson Mark Clarke. The CFIA released the results of its tests on Friday, September 16.
West Coast salmon migration routes are near waters that are feared contaminated with radioactive fallout from the nuclear reactor that was damaged by the earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan last spring. The agency did not answer repeated questions about where the samples were taken from in B.C., saying only that they were came from various processing stations.

The prefecture's federation of fisheries cooperative associations decided on Sept. 22 that local fisheries will continue to refrain from operations through October. The federation, however, started looking into the possibility of resuming the fishing of octopus, squid and other species whose levels of cesium are within the safety limit -- on an experimental basis. The federation will double the number of sampling survey ships to two and equip fisheries cooperative associations with five radiation measurement devices.
