Reports released at a Symposium last month admitted that cesium being leaked into the sea from Fukushima Daiichi had traveled 2000km and down to 5000km in depth in the Pacific during the first month of the disaster. Why this information was not released to the public sooner was not explained. Substances were found on the Russian Kamchatka Peninsula during the first month of the disaster. With the currents in the Pacific this raises questions about the contamination already reaching the waters of Canada and the US. Currently no sea testing or seafood testing is planned in the US where officials closed the issue weeks after the disaster claiming models said there was no risk. Canada has done some minor testing but no comprehensive testing of the sea or seafood.
Update: sources for the Russian contamination. http://ex-skf.blogspot.com/2011/11/now-they-tell-us-continues-government.html
This image shows the Pacific currents. Experts have already called into question the idea that this will disperse into the ocean, something initially claimed at TEPCO dumped massive amounts of radioactive water into the sea.
