    Radiation is a very powerful force that can do substantial amounts of damage to a species or an entire environment. As radioactive materials (in this case, censium 137 and iodine 131) spill into the sea the aquatic animals can be affected in a few different ways. Firstly, the initial exposure to radiation could kill off mass amounts of fish or other marine species. It could also create odd mutation in animals and alter the genetics of a species. There is also the danger that radiation can move up the food chain as one animals is eaten by another and another, spreading the danger even further.
