Report regarding the levels of Plutonium, Strontium, Cesium and Iodine in seawater (open seas):
Press Release (Nov 04,2011) Detection of Radioactive Materials from Seawater near Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (217th release)
Report on the detection of Plutonium, Strontium and other radiactive materials on the soil at Fukushima Daiichi:
Press Release (Nov 04,2011) Detection of radioactive materials in the soil in Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (37th release)
Report on the detection of Plutonium and other radiactive materials in seawater at Fukushima Daiichi's water intake channel:

As an SRO at a US PWR, I ask the question: Why would that surprise anybody?
Report regarding the levels of Plutonium, Strontium, Cesium and Iodine in seawater
Iodine, atomic number 53. occurs naturally in seawater. We need Iodine to survive.
"Iodine is found on Earth mainly as the highly water-soluble iodide I-, which concentrates it in oceans and brine pools." (wiki)
Maybe I'm missing something with this Iodine thing.
(the other stuff isn't good, but Iodine?)
So there could be many “number ones” at Fukushima (Daiichi means number one).
