Get it while its hot:
Seafood markets in Fukushima, Japan, are being stocked with locally caught products again, as officials seek to reintroduce local fare in the area that was hit by an earthquake, a tsunami and a nuclear meltdown in March of 2011.
The AP reports on the details:
“Octopus and whelk, a kind of marine snail, were chosen for the initial shipments because testing for radioactive cesium consistently measured no detectable amounts, according to the Fukushima Prefectural (state) fishing cooperative. They were caught Friday and boiled so they last longer while being tested for radiation before they could be sold Monday.”
The seafood goes on sale in the same month that Japan lifted its moratorium on nuclear power. Officials approved the restart of two nuclear power plant reactors in Fukui prefecture, which lies in the country’s western region.
