A local restaurateur is concerned about the seafood supply. Here’s a note from the restaurant’s kitchen staff:
I’d personally love to know, as a restaurant owner (and I think others would as well): What are people’s opinions on eating fresh, or any seafood (whether or not it is from Japan), given that radioactive water is directly leaking from reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant into the ocean. Are you thinking:
1) Start testing/certifying for no radioactivity immediately or I won’t eat it?
2) Enjoy it until levels of of radioactivity in or near the US are reported as elevated?
3) Avoid west coast seafood altogether, but east coast (gulf coast) is acceptable?
4) Or “fish swim, west coast – east coast, doesn’t make a difference” a fish free diet?
I received a voicemail the other day from a guy who is going all over town with a Geiger counter and waving it over food products. Get ready for the next big topic. Speak.
