Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida unveiled a 20.7 billion yen ($141 million) emergency fund for seafood exporters on Sep. 4, 2023, amid Fukushima wastewater release concerns, adding to a previous 80 billion yen ($547 million) allocation to restore the industry's reputation.

While Japanese ministers attempt to convince the public by consuming Fukushima's sashimi during televised broadcasts, lingering concerns persist. A disillusioned fisherman and mother, Haruko, shared her worries, "Our family eats seafood from Fukushima all the time, but now I hear people say that they won’t buy it. They certainly don’t want to give it to their children." The head of Japan's fisheries cooperative added, "The fishing communities of Japan are growing increasingly anxious as they witness this unfolding situation."

Despite the evident harm to Japanese fishermen's livelihoods caused by the discharge of nuclear wastewater, the Japanese government obstinately clings to its position.
