NOTE:  (Correction)

In her KGO interview, Karen Charman misspoke in stating that 60-80 percent of the fish in the Pacific Ocean may have been contaminated by the Fukushima disaster. The article she was referencing said that 60-80 percent of the Japanese fishing catches tested monthly since the disaster tested positive for contamination by Cesium 137, a radioactive isotope.
