No radiation found in Alaskan fishery products, says Alaskan crabber

According to the hit T.V. show, Deadliest Catch’s website:

Scott [Campbell, Jr.], also known as “Junior” after his crab fishing father, is a take-no-prisoners captain who doesn’t take “no” for an answer. He’ll pull no punches to be the best in the fleet, and he’s intent on making his mark on the Bering Sea.

Though his father tried to break him of fishing when he was young, Junior kept at it and earned his way to the wheelhouse as a self-made man at a very young age. He was just 26 when he captained his first boat.

However, Junior recently chimed in on YouTube regarding the Fukushima nuclear disaster, saying, “The current systems that run from Japan come along the Pacific Ocean, and we’re in the Bearing Sea, so we’re actually above those systems. We have found no forms of radiation, no forms of contamination on any of our products in Alaska and they have been tested.”

While Junior’s testimony may satisfy some, others will still naturally consume Alaskan fish products with exercising caution.
