Debunked: Fukushima Causing Bloody Tumors in Fish [Old Photos]

Geoengineeringwatch.org reposted a story involving Fukushima radiation, bloody tumors found on fish, and the impending danger to the food chain.

http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/...tion-bloody-cancerous-tumors-in-fish-seafood/


The article knits together a series of correlations in an attempt to make its point.


Ironically, the one and only link between fish and Fukushima radiation comes from a mainstream media source.

The Blue Fin tuna story goes back to 2012 and does seem to establish a link between Fukushima and radiation in fish. However, the story also notes:

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/radioactive-bluefin-tuna-crossed-pacific-to-us/


But the Geoengineeringwatch.org article then goes on to say:


Evidence of this comes from the Local Environmental Observers Network in Alaska

I checked their website and found the attached 2013 report

http://www.anthc.org/chs/ces/climate/leo/


The Local Environmental Observers gave no indication that these growths were caused by radiation.


The rest of the Geoengineeeringwatch.org article goes on to illustrate a serious of mysterious growths and tumors occurring on different types of sea life. I won't go into each one here.


There is a large body of science dedicated to fish pathology. This was certainly true with respect to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.

http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=fishingpathologylab.pathology_publications


It seems very clear that growths, tumors, or other diseases have multiple causes aside from radiation poisoning. In other words, these are fairly routine in nature.

But here is where I admit my limitations and pass along the conversation to people who hopefully know more.

the tumour picture is actually henneguya salminicola, a common salmon parasite. The pictures from the claimed 2013 report have been stolen/lifted/altered from a 2009 wiki upload. And they are cysts, not tumours.

Kudos thyrsites is another similar marine fish parasite that can cause similar cyst/tumours/lesions, but neither are caused by radiation.

A reverse image search has several of those pictures leading to fishpathogens.net. The picture of the star fish ("are supposed to have FIVE legs. The shape of a star. Look what radiation did to this one") was taken in 2006, five years before Fukushima.

Yet another example of Dane Wigington's fear-mongering and misleading paraphrasing of scientific articles. Regarding the photo of the white shark with the tumor he says:
But the abstract of the original article that reported on the great white tumor makes it clear that tumors have been reported in numerous shark species for decades. There is no mention in the abstract of any link between shark tumors and radiation (though it does mention generally that
). And, none of the articles that I found reporting on this story said anything about radiation (such as this one). It seems that the motive for the original article was to dispel the myth that sharks do not get tumors, because there is a belief that eating shark cartilage can help treat cancer, which contributes to the demand for shark products, overfishing, and their population decline.

And the picture of the star fish that according to Wigington should have only 5 legs appears to be a sunflower starfish.

I only looked into 2 of his claims on this subject and both are fabrications... no point in wasting time following up on the rest!

debunked almost 2 years ago.. dane should learn google image search. Looks like they did try to update some pics from the original article of the same name though.

So, not content with using photoshopped pictures to promote his chemtrail hoax, Dane now uses a photo taken more than six years before the Tohoku earthquake to promote his Fukushima scare stories.

I think we just need a sticky thread entitled "Latest misleading images from Geoengineeringwatch.org". :)

Incidentally, why is Geoengineering Watch posting stories about Fukushima anyway? That article doesn't even attampt to make any link between geoengineering and the earthquake. Or is it just part of the general doom porn?

Gotta love how geoengineeringwatch takes for granted that their faithful audience is dim enough to eat the bloody, cancerous tumors they find in their seafood.

Exactly the sort of help that I needed. As is the case with the rest of the replies.

Many thanks!

It looks like Geoengineeringwatch.org has branched out into a more general series of exposes. Some are still environmental in nature.

http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/arctic-death-spiral-and-the-methane-time-bomb/


Other stories are now grouped under a feature called “Critical Global Flashpoints”

It looks like Wigington is expanding his repertoire. It may be that his geoengineering stories are getting repetitive and losing traction even among his constituency.

Or widening the net to catch more "believers". A non-chemtrail believer may stumble across the site because of an article like this, and then latch onto some of the other core ideals being shared by the site and then down the rabbit hole.

I noticed that the picture of the sunflower starfish has since been deleted from the article.

I think it could also be part of the general Chemtrails work with HAARP which causes earthquakes meme

What gets me is, this story is something that really happened and it sucks! If only Dane and these other people spreading misinformation put their energy into things that are actually happening they might get somewhere ... not much chance of that though ...
