[ RadSafe ] NY Times - Fukushima Keeps Fighting Radioactive Tide 5 Years After Disaster

For decades it has been widely known that the best way to encourage wildlife populations, on land or at sea, to expand is to provide sanctuaries.  If you give animals someplace to live and breed without being killed by people the populations recover, then expand to outside the sanctuary.  I hope there are studies going on throughout the evactuation zone and the area closed to fishing to document the changes in wildlife, in terms of population, not in search of some defect that can be pointed at as proof of "radiation-BAD!"

Ironically the closed fishing grounds will become a haven for fish and will undoubtedly have a greater diversity and population of fish than nearby open areas.  By closing the area they have in essence created a fish sanctuary.  One can only wonder what the nuclear skeptics will think about the soon to be larger (allowed to grow larger rather than being caught) fish that will eventually populate this closed area.
