Japanese fisherman land their catch of octopus, and large whelks, at the fishing port which has barely recovered from the March 2011 tsunami, in the Matsukawaura district of Soma, Japan, on Monday 23 July 2012. The octopus and whelks are then checked for radiation contamination, at the seafood radiation testing centre, located beside the port, and if the seafood is found to be clear it will be on sale within local shops within two days.
