Contaminated soil on the sea floor was found a few kilometers south of Fukushima Daiichi. The samples were collected in late 2013 by NRA and found to have 2000 bq/kg of contamination. NRA cites that the currents run from north to south making contamination along the coast south of the plant likely. The same areas showed fairly low levels of contamination when the sea water itself has been tested. This adds to the concern that much of the contamination may have settled in the sea soils.
