FISH caught off the coast of Japan’s Fukushima Prefecture will no longer be sold at restaurants in Bangkok, Thailand, after consumer groups protested over possible nuclear contamination.

Thailand was the first country to purchase fish from Fukushima Prefecture on March 1, almost exactly seven years after an earthquake and tsunami which caused a nuclear reactor meltdown at the Tokyo Electric Power Co Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in 2011.
