Sardines too. Hmmm. I've been following the deaths of dolphins on the east and west coast as well. Maybe related? Obviously, as an opponent of fracking, I always consider the chemicals used (a closely held secret of the fracking industry, with governments happy for it to be so). Undersea fracking, where the abysmal environmental standards of land fracking is altready known, what is suggested, very reasonably imo, is that, undersea, any spillages, leaks is of absolutely no interest to the rapacious fracking companies.

Please keep in mind the reason is unclear, and may have a completely natural cause:

The reason for the drop is unclear. Sardine populations are famously volatile, but the decline is the steepest since the collapse of the sardine fishery in the mid-20th century. And their numbers are projected to keep sliding.

One factor is a naturally occurring climate cycle known as the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, which in recent years has brought cold, nutrient-rich water to the West Coast. While those conditions have brought a boom in some species, such as market squid, they have repelled sardines.

If nature is responsible for the decline, history shows the fish will bounce back when ocean conditions improve. But without a full understanding of the causes, the crash is raising alarm.

Conditions never seen before by scientists in Pacific seals and walrus — Thyroid cysts, lesions of reproductive system, retained placenta — Hunters concerned — Oceanographers to discuss radiation from Fukushima on Alaska radio tomorrow

Published: January 27th, 2014 at 10:04 pm ET By ENENews

Alaska Marine Science Symposium (pdf), Jan. 20-24, 2014: Incidental Gross Necropsy Findings In Subsistence Harvested Ice Seals And Pacific Walrus [...] Ice seals (ringed, bearded, spotted seals) and Pacific walrus are very important subsistence species for Arctic coastal communities. As part of the North Slope Borough (NSB) ongoing Marine Mammal Health Research program, the department of wildlife management conducts necropsies and baseline tissue sampling on subsistence harvested marine mammals. We present some results from our 2011-2013 general ice seal [ringed, bearded, and spotted] and Pacific walrus subsistence harvest monitoring and sampling efforts due to hunter concern NOTE: Case reports (type 1 alopecia/delayed molt; type II ulcerative dermatitis, delayed molt etc.) from the ongoing 2011 Northern Pinniped unusual mortality event disease investigation were not included and will be reported elsewhere. Results: Incidental gross findings among the three species included: lesions of the reproductive system (adnexal cysts, uterine and penile melanosis, cliteromegaly, cryptorchism, retained placenta), endocrine system (thyroid cysts, adrenal nodules), musculoskeletal system (synovial cyst), integumentary system (panniculitis, epidermal molt (aka dreadlocks), skin sloughing) and digestive system (microdontia; chronic interstitial pancreatitis, hepatic cyst; cholestatic jaundice; geophagia). Helminths were commonly observed in the gastrointestinal system of ice seals [...] A variety of the observed pathological conditions (reproductive and endocrine lesions) are reported for the first time in Arctic Pinnipeds [...]

Kyodo: ‘Massive’ amount of Fukushima data wrong? “Figures can’t be trusted” — NHK: Strontium-90 by ocean at 160,000 times limit — Tepco: Actual levels “exceeded the upper limit of measurement… We are very sorry”
Published: February 7th, 2014 at 9:10 pm ET
By ENENews
===================================================

Kyodo, Feb. 7, 2014: TEPCO to review “massive” radiation data due to improper measurement – [TEPCO] said Friday that it will review a “massive” amount of radiation data it has collected at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant because readings may be lower than actual figures due to improper measurement. “We are very sorry, but we found cases in which beta radiation readings turned out to be wrong when the radioactivity concentration of a sample was high,” TEPCO spokesman Masayuki Ono told a press conference. [...]

Kyodo/Jiji, Feb. 7, 2014: [TEPCO] said it will re-analyze past water samples because some of the figures can’t be trusted.

NHK, Feb. 7, 2014: TEPCO to review eroneous [sic] radiation data — The operator of the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has decided to review radiation data after finding the initial readings may be much lower than actual figures. [TEPCO] says it has detected a record high 5 million becquerels per liter of radioactive strontium in groundwater collected last July from one of wells close to the ocean. That’s more than 160,000 times the state standard for radioactive wastewater normally released into the sea. [...]

Yomiuri Shinbun translated by EXSKF, Feb. 7, 2014: [...] 5 million Bq/Liter of radioactive strontium was detected from the groundwater sample taken on June 5 [...] about 1,000 times that of the highest density in the groundwater that had been measured so far (5,100 Bq/L). TEPCO didn’t disclose the result of measurement of strontium [...] On February 6, TEPCO explained that they had “underestimated all of the results of high-density all-beta, which [in fact] exceeded the upper limit of measurement.” [...] The company recently switched to a different method of analysis that uses diluted samples [...]

Jiji Press, Feb. 7, 2014: TEPCO May Have Underestimated Radioactive Water Spill Impact [...] Nuclear Regulation Authority may have to revise its provisional assessment of the spill [from a tank in summer last year], now put at Level 3 on the International Nuclear Event Scale of zero to 7, if the actual amount is far larger than has been announced, an official of the NRA Secretariat said. TEPCO’s measurement method is considered unreliable, the official added. [...]

Ken Adachi is a Canadian fellow and started working long time ago as an journalist at the Toronto Star. He published at least one book (Ken Adachi - The Enemy That Never Was: A History of the Japanese Canadians - 1976) and owns a large web site at http://educate-yourself.org/. Pretending to provide 'education', Adachi's web site actually promotes weird conspiracy-stream content like other certain web sites, too. Adachi's 'enlightment' ranges from the truth about the purpose of vaccine (surreptitious population reduction agenda run by the Illuminati, facism in the USA and concentration camps), the real background of the New World Order (NWO) (see http://www.apfn.net/messageboard/12-14-02/discussion.cgi.8.shtml and http://100777.com/taxonomy/page/or/14), chemtrails (http://educate-yourself.org/ct/) and of course several pages about Al Bielek and the other allegedly survivors/participants of the Montauk Project (http://educate-yourself.org/ab/, http://educate-yourself.org/products/pslastlecturedescrip.shtml, http://educate-yourself.org/mc/). Obviously driven by a mild paranoia, Adachi even talks about aliens working hand in hand with the Illuminati in order to support the NWO, using Cell Phone technology to achieve mind control: http://www.detailshere.com/elftowers.htm :

Gov’t Test: Cattle feed at California dairy farm had 300 pCi/kg of radioactive cesium after Fukushima; 9-month gap between when sample harvested and when received by lab — New UC Berkeley study reveals over 3,500 pCi/kg of cesium deposited on nearby roadside Published: February 15th, 2014 at 5:43 pm ET
By ENENews

==========================================

Measurements of Fission Products from the Fukushima Daiichi Incident in San Francisco Bay Area Air Filters, Automobile Filters, Rainwater, and Food, Dec. 27, 2013: A variety of environmental media were analyzed for fallout radionuclides resulting from the Fukushima nuclear accident by the Low Background Facility (LBF) at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) in Berkeley, CA. [...] An asphalt berm (curb) along the downslope edge of the road protects the slopes below from rainfall runoff from the road surface. [...] Typically, the sieved material represents at least 80% of the total collected material. For analysis, these sediments are packed into one of the same counting containers as are used for soil samples. These procedures were followed for the samples listed in Table A.5

.

The June 9, sample result was 132.4 Bq/kg of cesium 134 + 137 (3,579 pCi/kg).

Winter forage vegetation at the California

Winter forage vegetation at the California dairy farm had combined cesium 134 + 137 equaling 0.299 pCi/gram or 299 pCi/kg.

Cesium-134 levels would be even higher than reported due to the 9 months of radioactive decay that took place before testing occurred (37.5% into its 2-year half-life).

No reason is stated for the 9-month gap between when the vegetation sample was harvested and when it was tested.

Steven,

I think you missed the point: I showed several sources saying similar things. I included the one from the "educate yourself" website because it is pro-conspiracy and should avoid the tag of being a "government mouthpiece". If i just posted what I consider to be 'reputable' website, people would claim that the sources are part of the conspiracy (as you have all but done with the BBC).

*sigh* More walls of text.

Anyway, you mentioned ENENews again and had a link... but the heading can be misleading if you don't read the article. Let's see what he said:

- "There is no evidence of Fukushima fallout here in California and local fish are safe to eat but I won't be surprised to see small amounts of Fukushima fallout in the Pacific in the future...".

Doesn't that say it all? No evidence. And in future? "Small amounts" and he wants to see increased monitoring; that's a good call.

And other websites, this one Al Jazeera:

"It is unlikely that [the effects to the starfish population] could be from Fukushima but we are not ruling it out," said Pete Raimondi, Chair of the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department at UC Santa Cruz."

(http://www.aljazeera.com/humanrights/2014/01/us-residents-monitor-fukushima-radiation-201411911450378232.html)

Additionally, ENENews is "cherry picking" reports; take this report: "Gov’t Test: Cattle feed at California dairy farm had 300 pCi/kg of radioactive cesium after Fukushima; 9-month gap between when sample harvested and when received by lab — New UC Berkeley study reveals over 3,500 pCi/kg of cesium deposited on nearby roadside".

(http://enenews.com/govt-doc-cattle-feed-california-dairy-farm-300-pcikg-radioactive-cesium-after-fukushima-tested-9-months-after-being-harvested-berkeley-study-reveals-3500-pcikg-cesium)

Let's face it, neither one of us is an environmental scientist or a nuclear physicist; the figures and table don't necessarily mean anything. All we know is if something is higher than normal we get worried.

Instead, let's have a look at the conclusion of the report (which ENENews didn't put up in their article):

"The fission products measured in this work ... were not found at any time to be of concern to public or environmental health. These conclusions are justified not only through governmental limits of exposure and activities, but also by direct comparison of natural radioactivities also present in all samples measured."

http://arxiv.org/pdf/1312.7314v1.pdf

The message that we should be taking from all this is not that Fukushima fall out IS causing problems but rather than we should be prudent and monitor the situation so that if it does change, we can be alerted.
