Our dying oceans! Arsenic, cadmium, plumbum (lead) and mercury detected in high concentrations in seafood on the coast of Peninsular Malaysia
Seafood lovers living on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia are being warned to reduce their shellfish consumption due to the risk of heavy metal poisoning.
Associate professor Ong Meng Chuan, a senior lecturer of marine biology at the Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT) School of Marine Environmental Sciences, said a team of 25 scientists and researchers detected high concentrations of heavy metals in the Straits of Malacca during a scientific voyage on Mar 13-22.
These metals include arsenic, cadmium, plumbum (lead) and mercury.
He said the findings revealed that the waters off Johor, Port Klang and Pulau Pinang are at a higher risk of heavy metal contamination.

Latest study shows an increase in levels of Fukushima-related contamination in Alaskan waters as Tokyo reassure the world all is well with 2020 Olympics
The latest study shows an increase in levels of Fukushima-related contamination off the shores of Alaska, regular readers of The Big Wobble will know Bill Laughing-Bear has been keeping an eye on fish in Alaskan waters and has warned us all of rising radioactive contamination for years now.
Recently other warnings have been published as the slow drip-drip-drop of information is slowly increasing.
In 2017, A study by the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa revealed almost 50% of fish consumed on the islands of Hawai’i were contaminated with caesium 134 the radioactive finger-print of Fukushima.

Eight years on water woes threaten Fukushima cleanup with fish found around the waters of Hawaii and Alaska contaminated with caesium 134 the radioactive finger-print of Fukushima
The silence surrounding the Fukushima disaster recently has been deafening, it is one year in fact since any reliable information has been released from Tokyo Electric Power Co, the owners of the stricken plant.
Last year, Tokyo Electric Power Co said a system meant to purify contaminated water had failed to remove dangerous radioactive contaminants.
A report from Reuters today, claims most of that water - stored in 1,000 tanks around the plant - will need to be reprocessed before it is released into the ocean, the most likely scenario for disposal.
