No Reason for Concern Over Fukushima Radiation in Alaska

    We’ve heard a lot about potential radiation danger from the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear reactor, mostly from two sources: scientists whose job it is to measure these things, and social media that is flooded with dire, unsubstantiated warnings of doom.
    There is a concern in Alaska – but it’s not about being irradiated. It’s the danger of public perception, of people thinking Alaska seafood could be tainted. Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Larry Hartig told the Senate Resources Committee last week that seafood competitors “would love to discourage Alaska fish,” by spreading doubts about the safety of Alaska seafood.
    All of those concerns also attracted the attention of Representative Jonathan Kreiss-Tompkins of Sitka, who did some research of his own.
    “I live in Sitka, an island surrounded by ocean and I eat a lot of fish. If there’s radiation in the ocean, that’s concerning to me personally. I had been seeing a steady trickle of conspiracy theories on Fukushima, and the take-away from Fukushima is if you look at the hard data in the ocean, there’s no cause for concern.”
    Kreiss-Tompkins spoke with researchers with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, and attended a Congressional hearing in Washington D.C. last year on the topic. He said that not only is there no cause for concern about radiation poisoning here, it’s only a bit more concerning in Japan.
    “There’s sort of a gradient of the degree of radiation in the ocean. It’s more elevated around Japan, and it’s practically non-existent off the coast of North American and Alaska,” he said. “But even off the coast of the FDN plant in Japan, the radiation is actually well below the EPA drinking water regulations. If that were fresh water, it would actually pass EPA muster as potable water.”
    Marti Brewer, with the DEC’s Division of Environmental Health, says every agency that has taken a look at radiation levels, has come to the same conclusion:
    “The available information that Alaska has access to, from other agencies – federal agencies such as EPA, FDA, and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, as well as other pacific states such as Hawaii, Oregon, California and Washington, as well as Health Canada, have demonstrated that there are no levels of radiation that are of a public health concern.”

           A downed tree left many Monashka Bay residents without power for about an hour Sunday afternoon. Around 2:30 p.m. a Kodiak Electric Association customer was attempting to fell a tree when it dropped on a power line on Lakeview Drive. KEA President and CEO Darron Scott said the customer called KEA’s 24-hour dispatch to report the incident and the company was able to send a crew over right away. He said the power line wasn’t completely damaged and the crew was able to isolate the area for repairs.
           “No, no there was a little bit of damage to the line. We were able to repair it in place, but did not take down the whole line. The tree just kind of came into the line, the line was able to support the tree before it fell all the way to the ground.”

    Walmart announced Friday that they will continue to stock salmon products from most of the large seafood processors that operate in Alaska.
    Previously Walmart had announced that they would only accept salmon products that carry the Marine Stewardship Council label of sustainability.
    Since most of the large seafood processors that operate in Alaska withdrew their support for MSC that left most of the salmon from Alaska out of the loop to be sold by Walmart.
     The processors withdrew their support for MSC in favor of a competing sustainability label sponsored by the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute, which is the seafood marketing arm of the state of Alaska.
