Ban on Japanese fish remains in place due to Fukushima accident - oversight service
It said the ban applies to 242 companies located in eight prefectures of Japan. The ban remains in effect despite Japanese officials' repeated requests to lift it," Rosselkhoznadzor said.
This decision is based on the monitoring, run by Russian services, and by international and foreign organizations.
Five hundred and twenty-four Japanese companies that process fish from areas not contaminated after the accident have the right to export fish, fish products and seafood.
Products arriving from these companies are rigorously controlled for radiation, Rosselkhoznadzor said.
