Nuclear & Energy

South Korean experts have visited the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant to study the possible resumption of seafood imports from Fukushima and other prefectures.

The 7 experts toured the plant for about 2 hours on Wednesday. They were accompanied by officials from the Japanese government and plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Company.

They studied the contaminated water processing system known as ALPS and other facilities.

A Japan fisheries ministry official said he believes the tour helped show the experts that substantive measures have been taken to prevent contaminated water leaks.

South Korea banned seafood imports from Fukushima and 7 other prefectures in September of last year.
