I am concerned about the problems at Fukushima nuclear power plant caused by the earthquake and tsunami, in particular, the emission of radioativity. Fisheries Agency of Japan held a seminar on March 29 concerning the radioactivity and its impact on fish and shellfish. Experts explained that the amount of radioactive substances released from the reactor is small and there is no problem at present because sea water and sea currents make the impact of radioactivity extremely thin.
I hope the emission should be stoppted soonest by all means.


On March 26, 2011, OPRT renewed its website in commemorating the 10th anniversary of its establishment. The need to promote responsible tuna fisheries is becoming even more important in view of the status of major tuna resources being excessively used. OPRT hopes the information provided in this website will be useful in ensuring the sustainable;use of important resources for the world.
