» All fisheries suspended in Fukushima due to radioactive water leakage

Due to ongoing radioactive water leakage into the sea, fisheries cooperative in Fukushima gave up trial operation.

A fisheries cooperative in Iwaki city decided to postpone a trial operation that had been set for Sept. 5.Masakazu Yabuki, head of the cooperative, told reporters “We believe that (the decision to postpone the operation) is logical as we hear about issues over the leakage into the ocean of contaminated water day in, day out. We intend to conduct the trial operation if the situation settles down.”

Soma Futaba fisheries cooperative covering the northern part of the prefecture also follows a decision by Iwaki fisheires cooperative to give up a plan to resume fisheries business from September.
