Japanese marine experts who have been studying the effects to Japan's marine life following the nuclear disaster at Fukushima earlier this year, have found that one fish that swims in it's coastal waters, the 'hokkidokki' loco flumo, or 'dancing fish' is now swimming differently.
"So farro onlya one little fishy fromma oura lubbly serena waters of glorious Japan hasa beena affecteda," explains Japan's Minister of Fisheries Yakahama Makkahuchop. "Itta notta problem forra little fishy to havva forgetto how to swimmo, so itta okayo. Little hokkidokki fishy he no longer swimmy forwarda thena backwarda butta now he swimmy rounda and rounda in circle like he beena drinking too mucha ov ourra Japanese saki"
The hokkidokki fishermen are of course finding it much easier to net the hokkidokki as the new circular swimming habit brings the hokkidokki into the nets of their fishing boats without having to keep searching for them along the coastal waters around Japan. As soon as they find a shoal of the tiny fish the fishermen simply drop anchor then pass a few hours doing their Soduku number puzzles while waiting for their nets to fill.
British marine experts speaking from their new ex-News Of The World building in Wapping say they are not overly concerned at the moment about the swimming difficulties being experienced by just one species of fish but say it would be far more serious were it to spread to other species as well.
"Hopefully it will only be tempoarary and the hokkidokki fish will gradually return to swimming in and out ,and backwards and forwards as it had been doing for millions of years."
The real fear is that if the problem turns out to be catching then it could spread to all fish in the worlds oceans and seas.
They warn, "Obviously if this problem with the Japanese hokkidokki turns out to be catching then that would be a very serious situation indeed. It's very important that fish do not forget how to swim."
