FDA Adds Alaska Salmon Testing To Radiation Monitoring Program Alaska Public Media | Alaska Public Media

Alaska fish are being tested for radiation contamination from Japan’s leaking Fukushima Nuclear energy plant.

The power plant was damaged during an earthquake three years ago and continues to releases radioactive water into the sea.

Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation State Director of Environmental Health Elaine Busse Floyd says samples of Alaska fish have been submitted to a Federal Food and Drug Administration testing program.

“We were able to just encourage the FDA to add 20 samples of Alaskan fish to their annual monitoring program to specifically look and test fish for radionuclides,” she said.
