They’ve never seen or contemplated anything like this.
It [Fukushima radiation] will be reaching you quite soon, I think in the ocean current and the fish.
And the fish swim 1000s of miles. The EPA is not testing your fish caught on the West Coast. You should be testing your fish routinely.
I would be very cautious about… I don’t know how long it takes for the fish to get here. It’s already been a year.
The fish will be radioactive and I don’t think I’d be surfing.
