These are bad news for everyone – the first traces of radioactive salmon were found in British Columbia, Canada and there are even pictures to prove it. After it has been revealed that over a third of the ocean in the world has been contaminated from the explosion from Fukushima’s rector. This is why a team of researchers from the University of Victoria assembled to investigate and were shocked from the results – their salmon samples were radioactive. The US West Coast is also contaminated and there were traces of seaborne Celsium 123 detected in the ocean waters.

The environmental news report – WHOI is considered to be a crowd funded science seawater sampling project, which has continuously been monitoring the radioactive plume, making it’s way across the Pacific to the West Coast in America, from the demolished Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant which is found in eastern Japan.

The researchers had collected samples from the shores of Gold Beach and Tillamook Bay last year in January and February and the conducted tests which revealed the traces f the radioactive compound.

After having more and more reports of contamination appearing from all sides, the situation was more than clear – it was just a matter of time before the sea life becomes contaminated too. Last month the researchers tested several samples of the sockeye salmon from the Okanagan Lake in British Columbia and the results for the radioactive compound Cesium 123 came back positive. But this is not the first reported case of radioactive contamination from the water in Fukushima. There have been plenty reports which are mostly published in alternative media outlets, but there have not been many tangible data that indicate radioactive contamination of salmon in Canada so far.

If we consider the sole fact how the contamination from the Fukushima explosions had reached the coasts of US and Canada within only days of the explosion, and who knows where else it has circulated, considering the influence of the currents and the tides, should not be such a big of a surprise. The radioactive iodine 131 was also found in the municipal water supplies in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania shortly after the Fukushima explosions.

According to the latest tests, the sample from the coast of Oregon measured about 0.3 becquerels per cubic meter for the Cesium 134. This level of radiation was deemed safe and considered not to be risk for the environment nor the people by the many researchers both in Canada and the US. And of course, as with everything else, the cover up was deemed successful because all the major media such as the New York Post, NBC, USA Today and even the Inquisite stated their opinions that there is nothing to worry about.

We definitely know better than that because no amount of radiation in living organisms is safe, ever! So, every exposure to radiation, no matter how small, can increase the risk of cancer, and many other serious medical conditions.
