Trial fishing operations have been resumed by fishermen in Fukushima Prefecture, after being banned last month due to huge amounts of radioactive water leak from Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

Some twenty-one trawlers finally set off on 25 September from Matsukawaura port, bringing back five tonnes of seafood which included squid and octopus, the newspaper Asahi Shimburi reported.

The product which passes the official sampling inspection will be sent to several different markets, including Tokyo’s famous Tsukiji Fish Market.

Fukushima Prefecture has been regularly conducting tests on radioactive cesium levels in local seafood since April, 2011, one month after the accident took place in the nuclear plant as a consequence of the earthquake and tsunami.

The catastrophe, also known in Japan as the 2011 Tohoku earthquake, was the most powerful one known ever to have hit Japan and the fifth more powerful in the world since 1900, when recordings of these events began.

The latest tests that have now been conducted by the local fishing cooperative indicated that of 100 fish analyzed, in only five radioactive materials traces were found, and less than a tenth of the government limit, which is 100 becquerels. On the basis of these results, in the port of Matsukawa fishermen and traders' activities were seen again on Thursday as they were seeking seafood, JDP reported.
