Timothy Mousseau, Professor of biological studies at the University of South Carolina:

In terms of fish from the West Coast, what we need to be doing is monitoring the ebb and flow of these pockets of high contamination [...]

Given what we’re seeing off the coast of Japan right now with some of these new models and these new studies showing pockets of fairly concentrated materials can be carried relatively intact — even all the way across the ocean — there may be little patches of areas that are affected in a significant way.
