Recent studies conducted on bluefin tuna off the coast of San Diego have shown potential contamination from Japan’s failed Fukushima nuclear power plant. The migratory bluefin showed little to no radioactivity prior to the Fukushima melt-down (the same goes for yellowfin tuna) but it appears that the power plant disaster has increased the concentration of radiation in the fish by upwards of 10 times when compared to tests conducted in prior years. This discovery is something that scientists didn’t anticipate in migratory animals. Despite the elevated radiation readings the bluefin tuna are still deemed safe to eat, with radiation levels still below the hazardous limit (according to U.S. and Japan governments). Nicholas Fisher, one of the researchers reporting these discoveries to the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, went on to say “we were frankly kind ...
