Last time I asked, almost all the spider crab (zuigani) in Japan came from Russia. So I guess the prices will go up?

Banning seafood because of release of nuclear-poisoned water into the Pacific Ocean? Only Russia? Why not countries in the whole world?

And the poisoning of the Pacific will not only poison the greatest ocean on our planet. All oceans are interconnected. Any the poisoning of the oceans of the world will not be for one day, or one week, or one month, or one year. It will be for forty 40 yeras!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nobody should eat seafood in this area for over 20 years and japan should pay 3 trillion dollars compensation to these countries.

Well Russia committed grand larceny of whole islands, so their compensation is out.

Interesting move on Russia's part. But, why is Japan even trading with them? That is hardly a show of support to Ukraine. People in these countries should learn a lesson from Vietnam and breed shrimp, etc. in farms. Relying on the ocean is too risky because of radiation, climate change, and aggressive behavior of the CCP's navy.

Yes all countries that discharge nuclear wastes into the oceans should pay compensation.

Maybe pay into a common fund according to how much they discharge.

Russia is the country that has dumped the most highly radioactive waste into the ocean. Russia has several thousand nuclear objects dumped on its Arctic sea floor.

Who cares what this murderous regime has to say about this?

Neighbouring countries are only raising "concerns" for political reasons. It is a shameful attempt to try and embarrass the country they are jealous of and hate - Japan.

Places like Fascist Russia, Communist China and South Korea dump nuclear waste into the sea infinitely more radioactive than Japan is doing with their treated water. Fact.

“40 YEARS!!!!”

Tritium, a radioisotope made up of one proton and two neutrons, has a half life of 12.33 years. It releases electrons and changes into helium 3.

I just bought three bananas at the supermarket. I’m doomed.

Forget the forever chemicals, lead, arsenic, brake dust and plastic bags. This is a radioactive banana emergency!

So the country that is literally putting bombs on the rooves of nuclear reactors is now concerned about nuclear safety, is it?

-1 ( +5 / -6 )

In 1979 I did checks of GE Mark I BWRs like in Fukushima, and was concerned a little.

But these releases are much less than is normally dumped into waters by commercial nuclear powerplants.

you do know that Russia defeated the fascist Nazis and China is a developing capitalist country. And both them and SK actually care about their citizens. Please google 45% of US tap water is UN drinkable and causes multiple health injuries including death. If you have internet and not just cable TV.

Hey Guys, do we know when Japan specifically started releasing? I could see the reports about it but no specic date it started.

Is it only me not seeing it or is it deliberately hidden?

If you have internet and not just cable TV.

You think people here may not have an Internet connection? Oh my.

Russia and China concern

Or is this some us vs them mind trick?

Team CCPutin dont like it so… like it!

Or dont. And be on team CCPutin??

How about, NO. Tap tapity tap and try again.

Japanese fisheries and exporters who rely on exports for their living, I guess.

TEPCO will release 25TBq/year of Tritium.

You can't even get your facts straight: 45% have forever chemicals that MIGHT cause health problems. You will never here about these chemicals from Fascist Russia or Communist China but they have them as well.

What ol' Jack Burton always saysJuly 10 02:29 pm JST

It's like comparing saying any number of countries don't care about the entire population due to military test site's , or fast-food restaurants that causes obesity , diabetes or heart attacks or own large amounts percentages of the tobacco industry that required by law to be mostly owned by the government ie JAPAN.

Military test sites kill very few people and the others are down to personal choice. Nobody needs a paternalistic despot, they need a government that doesn't send them to war, lock them up, or kill them unnecessarily.

Japan is not better than China or Russia. All Asia is more of the same. All of it.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Japan should just stop buying seafood from Russia. There is nothing they offer Japan that the United States (Alaska) can't supply.
