Radiation and marine debris.. All of the marine debris that Beach Environmental Awareness Campaign Hawai`i (B.. ) uses for educational purposes was collected well before the 2011 tsunami in Japan and does not have radiation.. Also all of the marine debris that B.. volunteers are sorting was collected prior to September 2012 when the first items of tsunami debris were found in Hawai`i.. Unfortunately there has been no testing for radiation by the Hawai`i State Department of Health (the department responsible for monitoring radiation) on the beaches on O`ahu and Hawai`i islands that are known for the largest accumulations of marine debris on those islands and there's been no testing at all on any beach on the islands of Lana`i, Moloka`i, Ni`ihau and Kaho`olawe (which also have beaches that accumulate marine debris).. Therefore there is no information on radiation for these beaches.. Any item on beaches that accumulate marine debris can have radiation..
