Detection of radioactive materials from the seawater near Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station(12th release)
On March 21st 2011, radioactive materials were detected from the seawater 
around the discharge canal (south) of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power 
Station which was damaged by the 2011 off the Pacific coast of Tohoku 
earthquake as a result of the sampling survey of radioactive materials in 
the seawater which was implemented as a part of monitoring of surrounding 
environment. We had informed the result to Nuclear and Industrial Safety 
Agency (NISA) and Fukushima prefecture.
                                                    (We already informed.)

We conducted a sampling survey to investigate radioactive materials 
expansion into the seawater around Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power 
Station from March 31st to April 3rd, 2011. We informed the detection 
of radioactive materials as the appendix to NISA and Fukushima Prefecture 
We also informed the seawater sampling survey result which is implemented 
at three points within 15km area of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power 
Plant from April 2nd. 

Three nuclides (Iodine-131, Cesium-134 and Cesium-137) are fixed figures. 
Other nuclides figures are to be reinvestigated by improved measures under 
NISA instruction on April 1st.
We are intending to conduct the same sampling investigation.
