BEIJING - China's sea products will not be affected by radioactive water in the Pacific Ocean in the near future but the country still needs to keep a close eye on monitoring developments, said experts in the marine environment and fisheries.

By Thursday, the nuclear leak in Japan that was caused when an earthquake on March 11 and resulting tsunami disrupted the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant has had little effect on the sea near China, said Liu Guimei, deputy director of the marine environment office under the National Marine Environmental Forecasting Center of the State Oceanic Administration.

"According to analysis of the data, the radioactive sea water will gradually flow into the north Pacific, but some radioactive particles could be blown by air and may fall in the sea (near China) in small quantities," she told China Daily.
