Radiation in tuna found near California a danger? Stony Brook professor Nicholas Fisher says not a cause for alarm yet

Scientists are reporting nuclear radiation in bluefin tuna off the coast of California. The fish appear to only have low levels, but researchers say it's definitely the result of Japan's tsunami-damaged Fukushima power plant.

Stony Brook University professor Nicholas Fisher is one of the researchers who reported the findings. He says that though the radiation levels are higher than usual, it doesn't necessarily mean the fish are unsafe to eat.

    The point is the level, the radiation level, or the radio activity level, in these fish have INCREASED, and I'm afraid that it will continue to increase as time passes. The professor says he personally would not hesitate to eat the fish? Well, get him a plate full and let see if he cleans it!
