i'd like to point out that the last paragraph of all of that is based solely on projected numbers and not on ACTUAL numbers. it's a guess.
Near the west coast of the United States the maximum projected concentration is about 30 Bq/m3 some three years after the initial release.
This is 5,000 times less than the 150,000 Bq/m3 concentration we have assumed near the Japanese coast. Therefore, to keep the risk below 1x10-5 the consumer must limit his/her dietary intake to less than about 3,000 kg (3 tonnes) of fish. In other words, do not worry about eating fish taken from US coastal waters.
Since the concentration projected for waters near the Hawaiian Archipelago are even less than that projected for the West Coast, the same admonition applies to Hawaii.h
