Prime Minister of Japan visited the fish market, tasted the seafood and talked to the workers

Tokyo. Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida samples seafood at Tokyo’s Toyosu fish market on Thursday to assess the impact of China’s ban on Japanese seafood in response to the release of treated radioactive waste water from the damaged Fukushima Daiichi plant into the ocean. Sampled and talked to the workers.


The release of treated wastewater began last week and is expected to continue for a long time, possibly decades. Japanese fishing groups and neighboring countries protested, and China immediately banned all imports of Japanese seafood in response.

One of the seafood business operators told Kishida that his sales of scallops (a type of seafood) had dropped by 90 percent since the treated water was released. Scallops are largely exported to China.

“We will compile support measures for people involved in fisheries,” Kishida told reporters after a visit to the market. “We will also strongly call on China to end its trade restrictions that have no scientific basis.” China had increased testing on Japanese fishery products, causing lengthy customs delays before the waters were released and banned.
