A ban on the supply of black sea bass from Fukushima prefecture was imposed by the Japanese government. In one of the fish caught off the coast of the region, a significant excess of radiation was revealed.

As the Fishnews, radioactive cesium was found in the perch with a level of 270 becquerels per kg of mass. The fish was caught on April 1 at a depth of 37 meters near the town of Minamisoma, which is 25 km from the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant). The maximum permissible level of radioactive cesium for food in the country is 100 becquerels per kilogram.

Previous analyzes showed that in one of the black sea bass, the level of radiation was 500 becquerels per kg of mass. However, no restrictions were imposed then.

Last week the Japanese government allowed to drop into the ocean water from the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant, which was used to cool the molten fuel. At the same time, the authorities added that the water will be pre-purified from radioactive particles.
