30th December 2014 – Fukushima Radioactivity Monitoring in the North Pacific Ocean – a new paper published by Fisheries and Oceans Scientist Dr. John Smith
Ocean circulation model estimates indicate that future total levels of Cs-137 off the North American coast will likely peak at 3-5 Bq/m3 by 2015-2016, before declining to levels closer to 1 Bq/m3 by 2021.
Bio-accumulation will concentrate this through the food chain.

“Nicholas Fisher’s opinion was that the chances any fish would have any Plutonium contamination was small.” Report 15th July 2014 – Fukushima Radioactivity in the Pacific – Nicholas Fisher
Here are two studies that show fish and other sea life can ingest and bio-accumulate Plutonium. So testing needs to be done!
How Is Fukushima’s Fallout Affecting Marine Life? – May 2, 2013
In an experiment in the early 1980s, Fowler demonstrated vast differences in how much plutonium was absorbed from seawater by marine life across a spectrum of taxonomic groups.
Phytoplankton accumulated roughly 10 times as much plutonium as microzooplankton, which took up 100 times more than clams. Octopi and crabs took up about half as much plutonium as clams, but about 100 times more than bottom-dwelling fish.
Hanford, WA Tests Find Plutonium In Fish, Mulberry Trees
In addition to plutonium being found for the first time in fish, increased levels of strontium, mercury, beryllium, uranium, and cesium were detected in aquatic creatures. Short and long term effects of this exposure remain unknown, the report states.
From previous studies it has been found that in deeper water the Plutonium contamination will stay longer in the water column than in shallow waters.

Fukushima Radioactivity in the Pacific and Risks to Marine Life and Humans Delivered September 19th, 2013. Fisher and his colleagues evaluated the release of radioactivity from the failed Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan into the Pacific Ocean and the subsequent bio-accumulation of select radionuclides in marine animals. They found that cesium isotopes were accumulated in all plankton samples as well as in Bluefin tuna that transport the cesium from the waters off Japan towards North America.
Points of interest:
1. It is estimated that the 2011 Cesium contamination of Pacific Bluefin tuna near Japan was ~150 Bq/kg. As they migrated from the Western to the Eastern Pacific they excreted most of their Cesium contamination. After being caught in the Eastern Pacific near America they tested ~10 Bq/kg, 15 times less.
2. Their tests also detected radioactive Silver Ag-110M, at 8.4 to 17.9 Bq/kg in the plankton samples.
3. Sample dry weight Cesium bio-accumulation concentration factor was 16 to 22 times for Zooplankton, 71 to 79 times for microscoptic Copepods, and 15 times for small fish.
4. They didn’t have the sophisticated test equipment necessary to test for Strontium or Plutonium contamination.
5. In Nicholas Fisher’s opinion, the chances that any fish would have any Plutonium contamination was small.
The nuclear MSM propaganda machine uses a simple external dose model to make out to the public that most of the radioactive contamination is nothing to worry about.
This industry created safety model does not convey the true potential damage that can be caused by ingested radioactive contamination. Eating a Banana with potassium-40 in it is safe. Frequently eating seafood or food with Cesium-137 or Cesium-134 in it can be potentially dangerous, even in small amounts. Pregnant women and children are far more sensitive to radioactive contamination!
Artificially created Cesium-137 and Cesium-134 are radioactive and chemically toxic! Internally ingested Cesium radiates cells with large amounts of radiation, far more than any Potassium-40 decay. As ingested Cesium-137 decays it irradiates cellular structures with enormous amounts of radiation. Irradiation from Cesium-137’s decay daughter Barium-137m, is particularly damaging, because it has a very short half life.
This test chart provides a comparison in radioactivity by weight, between radioactive Potassium-40 and Cesium-137/134.
Potassium has always been in the environment. In actual fact we would die without it. Although artificial Radioactive Cesium has similar chemical properties to Potassium, it is not Potassium! Cancer is not the only illness that can result from the ingestion of these radioactive toxins. Chernobyl research shows if Cesium is taken up in the heart, it can cause heart damage, particularly in young children.
This very informative video, that is just 10 minutes long, discusses the damage very small amounts Cesium-137 and Cesium-134 can do to children and pregnant women.

10th November 2014 – Fukushima Radioactivity Detected Off West Coast
The amount of cesium-134 reported in these new offshore data is less than 2 Becquerels per cubic meter (the number of decay events per second per 260 gallons of water). This Fukushima-derived cesium is far below where one might expect any measurable risk to human health or marine life, according to international health agencies.atments like this
Comment: (My opinion)
“This Fukushima-derived cesium is far below where one might expect any measurable risk to human health or marine life”
Statements like this ignore the potential for the Cesium to be Bio-accumulated (concentrated) by tens of thousands of times through the ocean food chain. Trace amounts of other radioactive Isotopes from the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster would have to be present, if Cesium was detected. A lot of artificial isotopes are not only radioactive damaging, but are also chemically toxic to biological life.
Toxicity Multiplying Effect.
The toxicity of each additional environmentally introduced toxin, radiological or chemical, does not add up like Toxin 1 + Toxin 2 = 2, twice the damage. T1 + T2 can be 10 or twenty times more damaging and dangerous. The human or animal defense systems become weaker the more toxins they have to deal with creating a system overload, fighting too many battles on too many fronts, at the same time!
The Bio-accumulation of radiological and chemical toxins are going to dramatically increase toxicity multiplying effects throughout the Pacific Ocean food chain.
