Japan radiates Pacific Ocean, contaminates ocean ecosystem

Hey. just thought I’d pass on very important information concerning a new health threat resulting from the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the levels of radiation going into the Pacific Ocean are still extremely high after several months.

And one thing the video above doesn’t discuss is the bio accumulation occurring as radiation moves up the food chain it multiplies in it’s intensity, for example a plankton will ingest radioactive algae making it radioactive.

Then a shrimp comes along and eats the radioactive plankton, but the radiation has become hotter in the tissues of the plankton thereby contaminating the shrimp and rendering them even more contaminated or hotter than the Plankton was.

So by the time the tuna gets to the radiation after it moves up the food chain, it’s pretty hot.

Plankton (singular plankter) are any drifting organisms (animals, plants, archaea, or bacteria) that inhabit the pelagic zone of oceans, seas, or bodies of fresh water. Plankton are defined by their ecological niche rather than phylogenetic or taxonomic classification. They provide a crucial source of food to larger, more familiar aquatic organisms such as fish and cetacea.

Though many planktic (or planktonic—see section on Terminology) species are microscopic in size, plankton includes organisms covering a wide range of sizes, including large organisms such as jellyfish.
