"Fukushima: Japanese fishing against radioactive contamination chronic"/
« Fukushima : la pêche nippone face à une contamination radioactive chronique »
Like the Japanese farmers, fishermen are now again at the forefront in the fight against chronic radioactive poisoning of part of the population of the rising sun. At the agricultural pollution of biocides and other heavy metals (Pb, Hg, Cd, etc.). Adds another long-term radioactive contamination. Some people remember the tragedy of Minamata non-nuclear in 1956 (mercury), Toyama in 1946 (cadmium), the dumping of barrels of nuclear waste, radioactive contamination of long-term South Pacific by the many explosions of air 40-60 years and more recently the French tests at Mururoa completed by the President French at the time, Jacques Chirac.
Statements for the less courageous and very responsible for Mr. Takehiko Niitsuma, fisherman Iwaki, have attracted the attention of Japan's northeast.
Especially qu'Iwaki and industrial area are so close to the site of Fukushima Daiichi.

Some would say that this fisherman knows nothing and that radioactivity levels are safe. Others will say again that it is totally outrageous and stupid to listen to a poor Japanese fisherman. They are free to think that! But doubt their reactions, the day themselves and their families have to eat every day a piece of beef to Americium-241 Technetium-99 in powdered sauce Cesium-137! Bon appetite!
In short, this is serious fisherman and his attitude is exemplary citizen and his decision not to distribute food contaminated even slightly - especially since the measurements are unreliable - especially since the standards are reviewed upward by political or financial concerns - especially as a relativism settled gradually.
The ethical conduct of the fisherman (by the way), we hope so, the entire industry to a more responsible attitude with regard to the biotic resources of the oceans. We believe, in particular, ruthless hunting of whales for scientific reasons invoked ...
An essential milestone in the history of the South Pacific
All the Japanese people vividly remembers the 40-60 years that were the scene of many atmospheric nuclear tests in the Pacific. For the record, 1 March 1954, Operation CASTLE BRAVO, a hydrogen bomb with an energy of 15 megatons (1000 times that of Hiroshima!) Blew off the island NAM. The cloud rose to 40,000 feet and reached a diameter of about 100 km. BRAVO was the largest trial ever conducted by the United States, with an output 2.5 times higher than expected. It was also the worst radiological disaster in American history.
A 136 km northeast of the point of bursting, the Japanese ship Daigo Fukuryu Maru 第五福竜丸 was so covered with fallout that the 23 crew members fell ill, the radio operator Aikichi Kuboyama 久保山愛吉 died Sept. 23. A similar accident occurred on a Japanese fishing boat and Sanjiro Masoud was severely contaminated by nuclear fallout.
After the disaster, the exclusion zone around the trial of Operation CASTLE was enlarged, representing 1% of the total land area of the globe. The Bikini Atoll is still uninhabitable today due to the contamination of land by the Cs-137. After the explosion, the Japanese fisheries have been destroyed over 100 tonnes of fish caught in the radioactive waters of the Pacific.
