Emergency environmental radiation monitoring of agricultural, forestry, and fishery products

Immediately after the Great East Japan Earthquake, Fukushima Prefecture began monitoring the radioactive materials contained in agricultural, forestry, and fishery products and undertook the disclosure of information about them. In FY2012, the prefecture further enhanced the test equipment and system under which the monitoring tests have continued to be conducted. Shipments of items whose level of radioactive materials exceed the standard limits are restricted, and such items are not distributed in the market.
