Fish getting skin cancer from UV radiation
Teams find cancerous lesions on the scales of about 15% of the coral trout in Australia's Great Barrier Reef, which is under an ozone hole.

I care and I don't believe for one second that it's UV.

we would have seen this long before now.

It'a Fukushima. Period.

I read this yesterday, so I guess we can just chow down right when we catch them as in precooked?

Scientists have found that wild fish are getting skin cancer from ultraviolet radiation.

Approximately 15% of coral trout in Australia's Great Barrier Reef had cancerous lesions on their scales. In that regard, they resemble Australians who live on land — 2 in 3 people who live down under will be diagnosed with skin cancer before the age of 70, the highest rate in the world. It's probably no coincidence that Australia is under the Earth's biggest hole in the ozone layer.

Researchers hadn't set out to look for signs of cancer in fish.

Re: Fish getting skin cancer from UV radiation
I find it highly unlikely the cause is UV radiation since it has so little penetrative power. In a shallow water feeding fish, the cause would more likely be high energy particle radiation. One thing Ive notices in my fishing here is fish tend to stay deep and are reluctant to hit topwater baits as they once did. On a sunny day, you fish deep ( below 4ft) or you don't catch anything.

Thank you. I used to work in UV technology and water suppresses the transmission of UV radiation, as do the particles in water, which scatter the UV around. IF the UV from the sun were strong enough to cause cancer on fish in water, we'd be all dying right now.

I care and I don't believe for one second that it's UV.

Re: Fish getting skin cancer from UV radiation
You see, this is bullshit!! Scientists are intentionally misleading the public, probably at the behest of the government. Why?

You can have a bank of 40 400W UV lamps that emit 254nm wavelength and when they are submerged in water, you can look right at them, no problem - with the barrier of water between the lamps and your eyes. Lift those lamps out of the water and look at them and I guarantee you that is the last time you will see anything ever again. And that's at 254nm.

So, having said this, I call major mainstream bullshit and just one more nail in the coffin that is the Fukushima coverup.

Re: Fish getting skin cancer from UV radiation
Interesting fish..
They rush towards the surface when spawning..

and

they can change their sex..

Thirdly, the availability of mates is dependent upon local sex-ratios. Coral
trouts are protogynous ( i.e . sex-changing) and sex-ratios are naturally female
biased (Ferreira, 1993; Adamset al ., 2000). Most importantly however, is that
male coral trouts are (by virtue of their larger body size) more vulnerable to
fishing gears than female coral trouts (Adams et al ., 2000; Rowe & Hutchings,
2003). If so, the disproportionate removal of male fishes may alter local sex-
ratios. Under conditions of intense fishing pressure, therefore, female coral
trouts may be more willing to accept heterospecific partners, since they may
not be able to find or attract mates of the same species. In this regard, fishing
may have an impact on genetic diversity of coral trouts, especially if species-
specific catch quotas are imposed. This point highlights the need to consider
hybridization in the management of exploited fish species which coexist with
close relatives.
