Radioactive tuna? Japan nuclear crisis blamed for increased radiation levels in bluefin tuna

May 29, 2012

Scientists have found the fish have 10 times higher contamination than the amount usually found in tuna. They have carried the radioactive material 6,000 miles from Japan.

But researchers say the levels are still well within the "safe-to-eat" limits.

Details of the study are in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.
