What about marine debris?


Debris

Marine debris from a variety of sources wash onto Alaska shores every day. Some of the debris from Alaska shorelines has been tested by the Alaska State Public Health Laboratory for radiation levels; none of the tested items were found to contain radiation levels of health concern. For more information on debris arriving on Alaska shores, see http://dec.alaska.gov/commish/tsunami-debris/
