Radiation Damage in Fish
From a purely practical point of view it has seemed unlikely that radiation damage in fish from environmental contamination could ever prove to be a cause for public concern. Standards for permissible contamination of the environment are decided on the grounds of human welfare and these are far more stringent than any considerations which would be applied to fish or any other wildlife.
