Test fishing stopped because of leak

August 9, 2013

Leak from Fukushima Daiichi halts test fishing



A fisheries cooperative in Fukushima Prefecture has discontinued test fishing there due to continued leakage of radioactive water into the sea from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

Local fishermen suspended commercial operations after the nuclear accident at the plant in March 2011.

The Soma-Futaba Fisheries Cooperative had test fished north of the prefecture since June last year, to prepare for a resumption of commercial fishing.

Radioactive levels of marine samples from the area are far below government-set allowable levels. But it decided to stop, saying consumers would doubt that its catch was safe due to the leakage.

The cooperative said it hopes the plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company, will take appropriate measures to stop the leakage as soon as possible.
