New Hampshire tests fish for radiation

Posted: Updated:
CONCORD, N.H. -

New Hampshire is testing fish in the state to check for higher radiation levels.

Health officials are concerned a tritium leak from the Vermont Yankee plant in January 2010 led to higher radiation levels in fish. Multiple lakes and two rivers are being tested.

Initial tests of fish taken from one site in May showed levels were well below the FDA safety mark.

Vermont and Massachusetts are also testing.
