Radiation Found In Tuna


Giant Bluefin Tuna

Here is an article about the radiation found in tuna caught off the California coast.


974 lbs World Record tuna

Another reason I am glad I have been preparedness minded.  I bought lots of canned tuna right after the Fukishima disaster in March 2011.  Must be time to ration our usage…

I wonder if tuna will start dying of radiation poisoning…

    Wow, scary. Thankfully, these compounds do break down over time.

      Hello Laura,
      The cesium 137 has a half life of 30.17 years. Cesium 134 has a half life of 2.0652 years. Cesium 135 has a half life of 2.3 million years. The first two are what they are telling us was found in the tuna. The other part of the story is that the Japanese nuclear power plants are still spewing radioactive material into the ocean at an alarming rate. The plants are still not contained in the least.

      There is also radiation detected in milk from the west coast along with vegetables from California. So sad!
      Blessings, ~Mrs. R
