Japan's Fisheries Agency will conduct tests enabling a quick check for tritium, a radioactive substance, every day for around a month after the country starts releasing the treated water from the disaster-crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant into the ocean.

The rapid analysis system will enable test results to come out as early as the following day. The results will be posted on the agency's website, and such information will also be offered in English.

The agency hopes that the quick inspection will help curb the spread of misinformation about the water release and ease concerns among fishery operators and consumers.
