I visited YOKOHAMA HAKKEIJIMA SEA PARADISE to see biological impacts of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident. Though I have visited various places in Japan to see the health consequence of the accident, I can find no effect against creatures in Japan.
There are over 500 different varieties of fish with more than 100,000 sea creatures there. It is one of the largest Aquariums in Japan. There is an immense three-story aquarium filled with thousands of tropical and fresh water fish. You can even enjoy fishing horse mackerel. Furthermore we can cook and eat them inside the facility.
Generally speaking, fish's growth is so fast than human beings that they are more sensitive to radioactive materials of the environment than us.
So I visited the aquarium to see effects of the accident against creatures which are living in Japan.
Fortunately, I could see them grown up safely and I couldn't find any impact of the accident. It seems that there is no problem for childbirth and child-rearing in Kanagawa Japan.
