Any concerns of radiation from the Fukushima explosion in 2011 affecting the Alaskan seafood has been ruled out by the US Food and Drug Administration.

The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation and the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services confirmed reports from the FDA.  Alaska’s State Veterinarian Robert Gerlach says the concern in the public was that the radiation would pass via water and through the fish.

No Radiation Detected in Seafood From Alaska

Jun 28, 2014

On Friday the State of Alaska released the results of radiation testing of seafood from across the state. No radiation from the Japanese Fukushima Nuclear Reactor was detected. KDLG’s Mike Mason has the story.


Radiation from the Fukushima Nuclear Plant in Japan continues to leak into the Pacific Ocean raising concerns that seafood is being contaminated. However, the Food and Drug Administration reports that so far there is no evidence that radionuclides from the Fukushima incident are present in the U.S. food supply at levels that would pose a public health concern.
