  1. > **Environment Minister Yoshiaki Harada told a news conference, “Although I’m not the minister in charge, I believe there’s no choice but to dump the water (into the ocean) and dilute it,” sparking controversy. He was quick to add at the same news conference that “it is extremely important for the whole government to respond to possible harmful rumors on Fukushima products triggered by the release of the water into the sea and fishermen’s suffering.”**

    > In an online survey conducted by Naoya Sekiya, associate professor of disaster information at the University of Tokyo, this past March, 20% of Fukushima Prefecture residents and 20% of those outside the prefecture responded that they do not want to buy fisheries products from the prefecture. When asked what if contaminated water were to be released into the sea after treatment, the figures for Fukushima residents and others rose to 31% and 30%, respectively.

    > The fisheries cooperative federation in Fukushima Prefecture, hit hard by the nuclear crisis, has set a haul target for the first time since the outbreak of the disaster.

    > The Fukushima Prefectural Federation of Fisheries Co-operative Associations incorporated the numerical target in its disaster recovery plan it recently worked out in an effort to resume full-scale fishing operations.

    > Under their proposals, fishermen aboard these boats will: expand their hours of operation and fishing grounds; help young people accumulate fishing experience; and increase hauls to encourage brokers and fishing processors to make more capital investments and create more employment opportunities.
