Today we are looking into an abandoned research laboratory which also had a fish farm. Here they would find out how fish and animals are affected by radioactive radiation. This location is only a few kilometers from the site of the Chernobyl meltdown. Therefore, the environment should be optimal for this kind of research.

In 2000, “Chernobyl Radio-Ecological Center” took over the premises. They studied how fish are affected by radioactive radiation. The fish that were born were also used as food for minks and foxes to investigate possible effects of radioactive food intake. An unconfirmed rumor is that neither the minks or the foxes did it very well …
In 2008, the research lab was closed and the researchers resigned from the closed zone. As the pictures show, they did not care about cleaning so carefully.
