North Pacific fish are so unlikely to be contaminated by radioactive material from the crippled nuclear plant in Japan that there's no reason to test them, according to federal and state of Alaska health officials. Dangerous levels of radiation have been reported off the coast from the Fukushima reactor complex. However, a spokeswoman for the federal Food and Drug Administration told the Anchorage Daily News newspaper that the ocean is so huge, and Alaska fisheries so far away, that there is no realistic threat.
"[S]o unlikely to be contaminated by radioactive material . . . that there's no reason to test"?
My suggestion is to have these inspectors and their families eat nothing but the fish they say there's no reason to test.
