Radioactive Strontium Found in Fish

Low levels of Strontium-90, an isotope produced by nuclear reactions, were found in fish caught in August 2011, where groundwater from the plant runs into the Connecticut River. In February 2012, trace amounts of radioactive strontium have been found in bass fished 150 miles away.  This latter contamination is hypothesized to be the residue from above-ground nuclear testing in the 1940s and 1950s and the Chernobyl nuclear meltdown in the Soviet Union in 1986, though such suggestion remains unclear.
