SEOUL, Sept. 6 (Xinhua) -- South Korea on Friday banned imports of all fishery products from Japan's Fukushima region, which has been suspected of leaking hundreds of tons of radiation- contaminated waters every day.

"Imports of all fishery products from eight prefectures surrounding Japan's Fukushima, which is seriously polluted and damaged by radiation, will be banned," the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries said on its website.

In the past, import bans had been imposed only on 50 fishery products from the Fukushima region, but it will be expanded to all products from now on, the ministry said.

The eight prefectures include Fukushima, Ibaraki, Gunma, Miyagi, Iwate, Tochigi, Chiba and Aomori.
