Deformed Fish Being Found In Heavily Fished Area, Contaminated by Nuclear Waste

This is messed up!

Murmansk, Russia is home to 20,000 fuel rods, 12,000 cubic meters (about 333,360 cubic feet) of nuclear waste and 11,000 containers that the Russian navy has simply dumped into the Barents Sea and the Kara Sea, both in the Arctic Ocean. The Barents Sea sea is where a majority of commercial fish and crabs are fished for the world, especially for Northern Europe. During the Cold War, up to 150 nuclear submarines were stationed in the Murmansk region at any given time. Each sub had two reactors, and contained between 248 and 252 nuclear fuel rods. Most of these giants, some as long as 170 meters (558 feet), have been decommissioned in the past 15 years. But at least 40 still contain their reactors, complete with radioactive fuel rods. Like rusted whales, these floating potential environmental disasters sit at anchor in the Kola fjords, waiting to be stripped of their radioactive bowels.
