Testing regions in Alaska include the Aleutian Islands and Bering Sea, Bristol Bay, the Gulf of Alaska and the southeast region. The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation said Monday testing last year confirmed Alaska seafood hasn't been affected by radiation from the nuclear plant. "Testing in 2016 also confirmed the quality and health of Alaska seafood has not been impacted by the Fukushima nuclear disaster." "These findings do not indicate a threat to Alaska waters or the safety of consuming marine fish. DEC, in co-operation with its partners, currently deems fish and shellfish from Alaska waters unaffected by the nuclear reactor damage in Japan," the statement says.
