Nuclear Traces in Bluefin Tuna

Recognizing the irony, Monte Burke proposes that radiation leeching into the waters by the Fukushima Nuclear Plant (and thus into sea life), could in fact help Bluefin tuna populations, whose numbers have plummeted in recent years due to over-harvesting. “Scientists assert that the radiation levels found in these tuna are not high enough to harm humans,” writes Burke via Forbes. “But it is safe to say that the general dining public does not like to hear about radiation in their food.”
