    on the cache link (for now anyway) I got this

    “Radiation leaks into the Pacific Ocean from the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant has put the Ibaraki Prefecture fishing industry in a life-or-death situation.

    Fishery associations in the prefecture said Wednesday they would voluntarily stop fishing kounago (young sand launce) after radioactive cesium exceeding the provisional limit of 500 becquerels per kilogram was detected the previous day in samples of the small eellike fish caught recently off the prefecture…..

    ………The fishery association of Otsu Port in Kita-Ibaraki announced Tuesday it had detected 510 becquerels per kilogram of radioactive cesium, above the provisional limit, in launce caught off the port Monday.

    The fishery association of Hirakata Port also in Kita-Ibaraki reported 4,080 becquerels per kilogram of radioactive iodine had been detected in launce caught Friday. But launce caught off Otsu Port, south of Hirakata port, tested at only 1,700 becquerels per kilogram of radioactive iodine.

    According to the fishery department of the prefectural government, the amount of ocean-caught fishery products from the prefecture was 191,010 tons in 2008, fifth in the country. Coastal fishing accounted for 15 percent of this number. Most coastal fishing involves trawling for mackerel and other migratory fish.
    ………Meanwhile, neighboring Chiba Prefecture is planning to tighten inspections of marine products at Choshi Port near the border with Ibaraki…
