Fish caught in waters off the coast of northern Japan, where an earthquake triggered a radiation leak at the Fukushima power plant, are still as contaminated today…Contamination levels were particularly high among species dwelling at the bottom of the ocean, as sinking radioactive materials tainted the seafood, research…in the journal Science, suggest there is a continued source of radiation from the seafloor that will have a lasting impact…more…
