Macfadyen had sailed exactly the same course from Melbourne to Osaka, all he'd had to do to catch a fish from the ocean between Brisbane and Japan was throw out a baited line.
"There was not one of the 28 days on that portion of the trip when we didn't catch a good-sized fish to cook up and eat with some rice," Macfadyen recalled.
But this time, on that whole long leg of sea journey, the total catch was two.
So I will soon fly to Australia from France. That's a BIG trip (around 22 hours flight) and I was wondering if Fukushima has augmented radioactivity in the upper atmosphere. I know that (and there is no connection) pilots and aircraft crews are more prone to be exposed to natural contamination during flights, but I was wondering if it had increased since Fukushima.
Also given that Australia (going to east coast) is close to japan (much closer than france anyway hehe) is there any risk that the ocean is contaminated? Fish? I'm going there to do some spearfishing...
Many thanks for your replies...
I know I sound candid but with the overall lack of info about the subject, it's hard to know what's going on and the extent of contamination.
