Is this fish really "highly radioactive"?  What would be the number of
Bq in a kilo of bananas or a kilo of Brazil Nuts?  Does anyone on the
list have a subscription to the Kyodo News Service?

A mountain trout caught in a Fukushima Prefecture river [Niida River
in Minamisoma city] returned a radioactive cesium reading of 11,400
becquerels per kilogram, more than 100 times the government-set limit
for food items, a survey by the Environment Ministry said Friday.

The survey conducted in June and July also found 4,400 becquerels of
radioactive cesium in a smallmouth bass and 3,000 becquerels in a
catfish in Mano Dam in Iitate village, another municipality heavily
affected by the crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant
run by Tokyo Electric Power Co. [...]
