The Food Standards Agency carries out surveillance for radioactivity in aquatic and terrestrial foods. The following tables give the provisional results from analysis of foods from England and Wales during 2016.

All the results are well below those that would lead to doses that would exceed either the statutory UK annual dose limit to members of the public of 1mSv (millisievert), or European Union limits or European Government targets. Consequently, all results were well below any levels that would lead to unacceptable doses as a result of dietary intake.
