Radioactive goldfish [View all]

FirstEnergy finds goldfish in Perry nuclear plant, NRC investigating
A pair of radioactive goldfish has been found swimming in a lemonade pitcher in the bowels of the Perry nuclear power plant.

Their presence in a steam tunnel after a 43-day plant maintenance shutdown has led reactor owner FirstEnergy Corp. on a hunt to find the owner.

The fishy tale has prompted federal regulators to ask a lot of new questions about morale at Perry and whether plant operators can control access to radioactive areas as required by regulation.

"Clearly somebody brought the two goldfish into the plant. They did not swim into the plant," said Perry spokeswoman Jennifer Young.
