Since the tsunami hit Japan, the Fukushima power plant has dumped radioactive water into the ocean, and it has been detected in Alaska, what are the consequences of this on marine life and fisheries?

So far, none, and the effect will decrease with time.

However the effect of the sea on Fukushima province was literally devastating, with 19,000 people dead and 200,000 homeless and devoid of all possessions. But nobody wants to talk about that.

Funny things, people.

I suppose numbers of people suffering is social science, and now we come to a time when the output of food from the Earth and sea is only enough for everyone, and later, not enough.
