Radioactive bluefin tuna cross Pacific


www.news.com.au

ACROSS the vast Pacific, the mighty bluefin tuna carried radioactive contamination that leaked from Japan's crippled nuclear plant to the shores of the United States, almost 10,000 kilometres away - the first time a huge migrating fish has been shown to carry radioactivity such a distance.

Apologies if this should be in another place. If so please move.

What gets me about this article is the researchers are Startled to discover that the radiation is 10 times higher than other times they have tested.

What is the big surprise here? Nuclear waste spewing into the pacific. Is it any suprise that levels are higher?.

Infuriates me to think that this breaking news item is so oversimplified for the general public.

Other reports on here show that the situation is pretty bad, yet the media continues to feed us baloney.

Oh and the fish are still considered safe to eat?

Not much of a fish eater myself but that is worrying. Fish travel the world!!!
A lot of animal feed contains fish. We eat the animals!!!

Thats it, I'm phoning ET, I want off this planet.

Notice how they never told me the actual amount tested?

Like Bq/kg?

That's really suspicious in itself. Well, at least because that part of information is important for me personally to determine "just how bad it is".

Just telling me that it's "still under the limits set by Japan" is silly, they raised their limits therefore their limits are meaningless.

They should just give me the reading and let me decide for myself. But I digress.

Also noticed they said that these particular fish were expected to 'shed much of the radioactive particles" by this time frame, so that should indicate that if they had been normally excreting it, than there must be a lot of it to take this long to excrete.

Can't blame me for speculating when they are so incredibly vague and leave the door open for just about anything I can imagine...

Sigh...the folly of modern infotainment.

The levels of radioactive cesium were 10 times higher than the amount measured in tuna off the California coast in previous years. Read more: www.news.com.au...


It was 10 times higher than a number we don't know.
So there you go, the news.

They told us almost nothing. But yet they talked a lot.

This is the second phase of the culling. And, most likely, the final one. I will not be having kids, not because I am most likely (or will be) sterile, but because I feel guilt; there is no way I could every bring a living being into this world with the knowledge I now have.

If anyone can find the source article for this, I'd like to read it. I searched all over PNAS's website, but cant find it. Super annoying that the news.com article doesnt link to it.

Actually, based on your article, it would appear their surprise is that larger fish who apparently have the ability to shed radioactivity, not at the levels, per se.

But scientists did not expect the fallout to linger in huge fish that sail the world as they can shed radioactive substances. Read more: www.news.com.au...

If by 'simultaneous you mean 'started three hours after the other one, in the same forum.
