NHK reported this morning that a local fishermen’s association in Aomori is planning to seek compensation from relevant entities after a ban on fishing in Lake Ogawara was imposed after fuel leaked into the lake from two tanks that were jettisoned by a U.S. fighter jet on Tuesday. The network said local fishermen decided to ban fishing in the lake starting Wednesday until the safety of the water quality is confirmed, adding that they are hoping that the fuel tanks will be recovered so they can resume fishing as soon as possible.
