Economic Impacts from Japan threat to dump Fukushima radioactive water


The economic impacts to Japan’s seafood import business are already happening with a drop of 30% for May 2023 because of Japan’s plan to dump the Fukushima tank farm’s one million tons of radioactive effluent into the Pacific. This will be by no means the one and only radioactive dumping once it starts. The radioactive water accumulation in the more than one thousand tanks will continue for decades to come until the contaminated wreckage of the March 11, 2011 triple reactor meltdown is successfully decommissioned.
