I visited Enoshima Aquarium to see biological impacts of Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant accident. Though I have visited various places in Japan to see the health consequences of the accident, I have never found any effect against creatures in Japan.
Enoshima Aquarium is located in Fujisawa, Kanagawa Prefecture, near Shonan's Sagami Bay. It has beautiful views of the floating island of Enoshima and Mt. Fuji, making it an ideal place to exhibit the diversity of Sagami Bay's environment and world-class research on the region's marine wildlife. Enoshima Aquarium shows us not only various kinds of marine creatures but also entertains people with marine animal shows.
Generally speaking, marine animal's growths are so fast than human beings that they are more sensitive to radioactive materials of the environment than us.
So I visited Enoshima Aquarium to see effects of the accident against marine creatures which are grown up by Japanese food and water.
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.
