In response to the decision to release treated water containing radioactive substances such as tritium, which continues to increase at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, to the sea, TEPCO dilutes the concentration when releasing it in order to widely convey safety. It was announced that a test to raise seafood such as flatfish in treated water will be conducted from around the summer of next year.
The treated water containing radioactive substances such as tritium, the government decided a policy to release the prospect of two years, the sea diluted to 1500 below Bq per liter corresponding to 1/40 of the national standards the concentration of tritium I am.
Next year, TEPCO will conduct a test to raise fish in a tank filled with treated water diluted to about 1500 becquerels per liter by adding seawater in order to gain a broader understanding of the safety of release and reduce reputational damage. Announced that it will start in the summer of.
Fish such as flatfish, shellfish, and seaweed are bred, and a separate aquarium containing only seawater collected around the nuclear power plant will be prepared to compare the growth status and the concentration of radioactive substances in the bred seafood, and the results will be announced. is.
TEPCO hopes to conduct an analysis with experts during the next fiscal year and continue the test even after the release of treated water to help promote understanding of safety.
