Tokyo Electric “There is NO way to shield Bremsstrahlung (braking radiation) from contaminated water tanks”
January 12th, 2014 Fukushima Diary

There is NO way to shield Bremsstrahlung from contaminated water tanks, Tokyo Electric stated in the press conference of 1/10/2014.
The contaminated water tanks contain high level of β nuclides. As shielded by water and the tank material, it turns into Bremsstrahlung.

Tokyo Electric’s spokesman commented it is technically impossible to shield each tank. Even if Tokyo Electric puts the shielding material inside of the tanks, it also causes Bremsstrahlung.

Having the contaminated water endlessly increasing, contaminated water tanks are also increasing. Tokyo Electric’s workers involved in tank construction, leakage patrol, and maintenance are significantly exposed even without touching the contaminated water directly.

Fish with very high levels of cesium found near Fukushima
January 11, 2014 Asahi Shimbun (Japanese newspaper)
A fish contaminated with extremely high levels of radiation was found in waters near the Fukushima plant.
The Fisheries Research Agency said Jan. 10 the black sea bream had 12,400 becquerels per kilogram of radioactive cesium, 124 times the safety standards for foodstuffs.
The fish was caught at the mouth of the river in Fukushima Prefecture. The site is 37 kilometers south of the Fukushima plant.
2 other fish also exceeded the safety standards of 100 becquerels per kilogram.
