A ceremony was held Saturday to mark the resumption of operations at the fishing port nearest to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant stricken by the 2011 quake and tsunami disaster in northeastern Japan.

Why not? The fish are probably tasty.

The fish are not "poisoned" and if prices drop because of people like you it is all good.

You think you're gonna live forever? Eat the fish.

Let's start with the "GO TO EAT FUKUSHIMA FISH" campaign

And the Diet kitchens are ordering the fish for lunches, dinners and events!

I have not bought/eaten any fish products form anywhere near that area since the meltdown and have no intention of buying any in the future.

The port is located in Namie. The town has almost fully recovered from the disaster. Well done! Good job!

The fish is maybe clean when caught, but surely not that port. If I remember it right, they intend to release the Tritium water also north from the former plant, so the distance is six kilometers or something near that. Bon appétit.

The fish will be eaten… don’t fret people…

School lunches in southern Japan are a prime candidate… just the rice has been.

Best wishes and future good fortune to the people of the region.

France, America and many other countries dump radioactive waste in the ocean and water ways.

So, the fish there in Fukushima should be okay to eat. But, I would be more than a little nervous eating the fish from the port.

The fish should be safe but the reputational disaster that will happen once they start pumping the water, unjustified though it may be, will close them down again. People react to anything remotely connected to the word nuclear with their emotions not logic or scientific fact.

It will act as a nice water testing centre after all the containers are emptied into the ocean soon, and all other continuous discharges into the ocean since that isn't going to stop

just in time to enjoy the radioactive waste that will be released in the sea by Tepco,

Just a bunch of old guys cutting a ribbon. No women. Hardly reason for a 'ceremony'.

I bet most people here don't know where their sashimi or sushi's seafood toppings are coming from. For those of you who are concerned.....good luck! lol

Did participants taste the catch of the day?

No need to wait. The water around Fukushima power plants are already radioactive.

Did you ask the fish products (what's a fish product?) you bought where they came from? How do you really know where the fish came from?

GMO foods I don't eat.

Yes you do. 94% all soybeans used in all food and soy sauce in Japan are GMO. 92% of all corn is GMO. The label means nothing. It's not tested.

On the Fukushima disaster everybody was buying bottle water from overseas.

Now we'll have to buy sea products from overseas too.

That massive concrete wall, priceless….

If people really care about the environment, sustainability and climate change, they will have to learn to get over their nuclear phobias. The misinformation and pure hysteria even drive government policies - at a massive cost in human lives and environmental damage.

In conjunction with this ceremony, the Pripyat amusement park will also be opened.

Not all. Low prices are tough for the fishermen and their families.
