China News Service, April 20. According to a report by the Japan Broadcasting Association (NHK), the Japanese government has restricted the listing of black scorpionfish caught from the waters of Fukushima Prefecture. The reason is that the detection of black scorpionfish from the waters of Fukushima prefecture was previously detected. The radioactive material contained in it exceeds the standard.
Japanese media said that this is the first time in 14 months that the Japanese government has taken such actions against fish caught from Fukushima.
From February 25, 2020, Fukushima Prefecture has completely lifted the restrictions on the marketing of caught fish.

However, according to reports, the upper limit of cesium content in Japanese food is 100 becquerels per kilogram.
Fukushima Prefecture stated that the fish was caught at a depth of 37 meters, 13 kilometers away from Minamisoma City, Fukushima Prefecture.
According to previous media reports, in February 2021, a fish caught in the coastal waters of Fukushima Prefecture, Japan, was detected to have excessive radioactive substances. The fish was caught at a fishing ground about 8.8 kilometers from the coast of Shinjicho in Fukushima Prefecture and a water depth of 24 meters.
After testing, the radioactive cesium content in his body reached 500 becquerels per kilogram.
