Bay Oysters Safe

So says a fisheries biologist for Humboldt Bay Oyster Company in response to an earlier letter to the Eureka Reporter that asked the question. I guess that means you can all stuff your faces at the Oyster Fest this weekend.

There are certain shellfish that one avoids eating during months that don't have 'r'in them because of the threat of Red Tide. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_tide

I don't know how this effects the locally farmed oysters. As I recall, we harvested wild oysters in the winter on the East Coast or during months with 'r' in them.

As far as the spent fuel rods go, I still feel uncomfortable with them being stored where they are, as it is a major fault line. Are they 100% contained and with repsect to potential large earthquakes?

Last I heard, the spent fuel rods are in a big pool of water down below the old Unit 3, at the Humboldt Bay Power Plant.

They'll be moved, eventually, to a new location on the south west side of the plant. The new location is supposed to be even more secure. There was something in the news about the move a while back. I might have even mentioned it here, but I'm not sure.

I remember reading about the move to occur by 2012? It is probably better than trying to move them to Yucca Mountain.

Well, they're not going to be moved far from where they are now. I don't see a problem with how they're being stored now. Then again, I'm not intimately familiar with all the details.

Where they're planning to move them, if I have the location right, is about half way closer to King Salmon than they are now.
