Radioactive bluefin tuna found off Californian coast

Pacific bluefin tuna caught off the coast of California have been found carrying radioactive contamination from the Fukushima nuclear accident.

The fish are thought to have picked up the pollution while swimming in Japanese waters before making the 6,000 mile trip to the US.

It is the first time a large migrating fish has been found to carry radioactivity over such a distance.
