Radioactive Tuna Caught Off California Coast

The Bluefin tuna were caught in August by researchers who say its impacted by Japan's nuclear disaster, but its still safe to eat.

Researchers have discovered low levels of radioactive cesium from Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident in bluefin tuna caught off the coast of California near San Diego, according to a study cited by CNN.

Samples of tissue were taken from 15 bluefin fish caught off the coast in August, five months after the nuclear disaster at Fukushima Daiichi, according to a report by CNN.

The tissue samples all contained by-products of cesium -134 ad cesium-137 that produce radiation levels three percent higher than naturally found sources. Despite the fact that researchers told CNN the levels were well below what scientists have deemed dangerous for human consumption, the findings have raised concerns among many.
