Professor Michio Kaku: We have to realize there could be hotspots. In the future, there could be radioactive hotspots from the disaster and it has to be monitored very carefully [...]
There are ocean currents which don’t mix the nuclear waste evenly, and therefore we have to watch out that tuna may actually concentrate radiation in the tissue. And this is something that we have to look at very carefully, especially in the coming years, especially in the future, as we have to monitor more and more debris washing up on our shores, and perhaps other forms of sea life like kelp and seaweed that also are contaminated by the Fukushima disaster.
