Starfish / seastars don’t tolerate agitated water very well. They absorb the bubbles and fall apart. A bubbling filter in a 10gal fish tank will kill any seastar put into it.
I don’t doubt that high levels of radiation would kill them

What do I care? I don't live in Tokyo or Osaka.... In all actuality, the level of radiation that is now in the ocean is absolutely so small of an increase, it's literally negligible. From the reports I've read, the estimated increase at the site was 5uR/hr. This is the difference to me an you as one of us living in Dallas and the other in Denver
