Inspection of aquatic products imported from Japan
     As at noon today (August 24), the Centre for Food Safety (CFS) of the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department has conducted tests on radiological level of two food samples imported from Japan, which were of the "aquatic products, seaweeds and sea salt" category. No sample was found to have exceeded the safety limit. Details can be found at CFS's thematic website titled "Control Measures on Foods Imported from Japan" (https://www.cfs.gov.hk/english/programme/programme_rafs/programme_rafs_fc_01_30_Nuclear_Event_and_Food_Safety.html).
     In parallel, the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) has also tested 50 samples of local catch for radiological tests. All the samples passed the tests. Details can be found at AFCD's website (https://www.afcd.gov.hk/english/fisheries/Radiological_testing/Radiological_Test.html).
     Hong Kong Observatory (HKO) has also enhanced the environmental monitoring of the local waters. No anomaly was detected so far. For details, please refer to HKO's website (https://www.hko.gov.hk/en/radiation/monitoring/seawater.html).
