Making repairs

Fisherman Rikio Furukawa, 76, repairs fishing equipment at the Kuji fishing port in Hitachi, Ibaraki prefecture. Japan stopped highly radioactive water leaking into the sea on Wednesday from a crippled nuclear plant while acknowledging it could have given more information to neighbouring countries about contamination to the ocean. Fishermen from neighbouring Ibaraki prefecture saw prices for flounder and sea bream tumble as buyers shunned their catch. REUTERS photo
