"Now They Tell Us" Continues: Government Research Institute Says Radioactive Cesium in Marine Snow 5K Meters Deep

in the ocean, as far as 2,000 kilometers from Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant.

The Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) did the survey back in April. They decided to tell us now, after 7 months, and they did on November 20 in a symposium titled:

「東日本大震災 緊急調査報告会 ~緊急調査の成果と今後の展望~」

"Emergency [or urgent] Survey on Big Higashi Nihon Earthquake and Disaster - Reporting the result of the emergency survey and the future prospect"

The symposium announcement was made on October 28,2011. Some "emergency" with urgency.

About what they had to say in the symposium, here's Asahi Shinbun (11/20/2011):

東京電力福島第一原発から出た放射性セシウムが事故から約1カ月後に、2千キロ離れた深海5千メートル地点まで到達していたことが、海洋研究開発機構の観測でわかった。大気中のセシウムが海に落ち、プランクトンの死骸などに付着して沈んだようだ。20日、都内で開かれた報告会で発表された。

The survey by the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) reveals that radioactive cesium released from Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant reached the ocean 2000 kilometers from the plant and 5000 meters deep one month after the accident. It is considered that airborne cesium particles fell on the ocean surface, and sank as they were attached to the bodies of dead plankton. The survey result was announced in a symposium held on November 20 in Tokyo.

 同機構は4月18~30日、福島から2千キロ離れたカムチャツカ半島沖と、1千キロ離れた小笠原列島沖の深海5千メートルで、プランクトンの死骸や砂などからなる1ミリ以下の粒子「マリンスノー」を採取して分析した。この結果、両地点でセシウムを検出した。セシウム137と134の比率などから、原発から出たものと判断された。濃度は解析中という。海洋中の放射性物質は、海流のほか、様々なルートで移動、拡散している実態が裏付けられた。

From April 18 to 30, JAMSTEC collected "marine snow", sub-millimeter particles made mostly of dead plankton and sand, off the coast of Kamchatka Peninsula, 2000 kilometers away from Fukushima, and off the coast of Ogasawara Islands, 1000 kilometers away, at 5000 meters below the ocean surface. The Agency detected radioactive cesium in both locations, and from the ratio of cesium-137 and cesium-134 and other observations it was determined that it was from Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant. The density of radioactive cesium is still being analyzed, according to the Agency. It has been thus confirmed that radioactive materials in the ocean are moving and spreading not just by ocean currents but by various other means.

Surely a keen perception of the obvious.
The accident probably deposited more radioactive iodine and cesium into the oceans than any event apart from the nuclear bomb tests. (The Soviets did dump enormous amounts of nuclear waste from their naval reactors into the oceans, but I've no information of how much exactly.
It could well have been even more.)
The materials are biologically active and will be taken up by ocean plants and animals, without regard to radioactivity. I would guess that the researchers found the Fukushima signature every place they looked.
As the ocean waters circulate all around the world over a few decades, researchers will soon be able to pull Fukushima samples off the beaches of Rio or Capetown as easily as off Tokyo. The ray of light is that the contaminant concentration will be very low, at worst maybe doubling the previous background level if the reported emission levels are true if I remember reading correctly.

By the time human beings suffer from the Fukushima radioactive fallout, the perpetrators of this crime against humanity will no longer be around to face justice for having cursed their grandchildren and all the generations after them.

The true extent of the damage to the world is not yet known and may never be known until after our lifetimes.
