The Fukushima nuclear accident is certainly one of the worst disasters in history. It has devastated soil, people, animals, and food, however, that’s not all. 6 years have passed since the disaster. Hence, as nuclear activity is rather new to human race, so we’re not completely aware of all environmental factors that will be provoked by the disaster.
Images released from British Columbia, Canada show something startling, i.e. a radioactive salmon. Due to the nuclear disaster, around 1/3rd of the world’s oceans were contaminated by nuclear waste, so, fish and other marine life are paying the price. Researchers from the University of Victoria started an investigation of the salmon, that is, they took radioactive samples of it and tested them.
According to the tests, the samples from the Oregon coast measured around 0.3 becquerels per cubic meter of cesium 134. This level of radiation was considered safe and not a threat to humans or the environment, according to researchers from Canada and the USA.
