Today I went to Tokyo Sea Life Park. I enjoyed seeing large fish such as tuna or shark. Hammerhead shark showed us strange shaped head. I could observe tunas swim at high speed too. Everyone will be surprised to see them. At the Feeding time, we can know how marine animals eat or what they eat.
Do you know that they eat Japanese marine products which were bought at The Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo. They are completely same as Japanese eat.

Last April, the Japanese authorities tried to instil greater market confidence by lowering the maximum permitted concentration of radioactivity in fish and fish products from 500 becquerels per kilogram of wet weight to 100 Bq/kg wet.
This tightening of the threshold immediately re-classified fish previously deemed fit as unfit, even though their actual contamination count had not changed.
It is also worth comparing the Japanese limit with international standards. In the US, for example, the threshold is set at 1,200 Bq/kg wet - significantly more lenient than even the pre-April Japanese requirement.
Does other government have such a strict law? May be not. So I trust Japanese government and I think Japanese fishery products are safe.
