Japan Says Tuna Radiation Levels May Need Global Monitoring

May 29 (Bloomberg) -- Japan said there may be a need for global monitoring of radiation levels in tuna after a report showed fish with elevated levels of cesium from last year’s Fukushima nuclear disaster near the California coast.

Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Osamu Fujimura spoke to reporters today in Tokyo.

Bluefin tuna contaminated from the March 2011 meltdown at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant migrated 6,000 miles to North America, the Associated Press reported, citing a study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
