Fish From Fukushima

by Abby Zimet

Fishermen have resumed fishing after postponing their start when hundreds of tons of radioactive water were found leaking into the sea from the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant. Twenty-one trawlers brought home 5 tons of seafood, including octopus and squid, from the trial operation; if they're confirmed safe in tests, they will be shipped to markets in Japan. While older people are said to be buying fish from the sea off Fukushima Prefecture, others say they wouldn't let their kids or grandkids eat it. Altogether terrifying.
