Japan's Reports on Conditions at TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station

On 28 February 2014, Japan provided the IAEA with an information update, stating that they have taken actions in response to a sample of hilgendorf saucord (a type of fish) caught offshore in the Fukushima region which was monitored and found to exceed their national criteria for distribution to markets.

This situation shows the capability of the monitoring program in Japan to detect food which exceeds their national criteria and to take appropriate measures in response.

The Agency considers this information provides good assurance on the quality of the management and the safety of the food supply chain.

Additional information on the monitoring of fish products in the Fukushima region (and beyond) can be found here.
