The AP reports that Japan has begun selling the first seafood caught off of the Fukushima coast since last year's earthquake and nuclear crisis. However, due to lingering fears of contamination, sales were limited to octopus and marine snails.
The seafood offered displayed no signs of radioactive cesium, but it is unclear when other foodstocks displaying signs of contamination, such as flounder and sea bass, will be available. Japanese crabs have thus far gone without any detected radiation, but their sale remains prohibited. The government has announced that it is also testing for radioactive iodine, which contains a shorter half-life than cesium.
