TOKYO (Reuters) - The tsunami that hit Japan this month took such a huge toll on people, equipment and fish that supplies of some seafood could be cut off for a year or more, industry workers said on Tuesday.

The magnitude 9.0 quake on March 11 and the 10-metre (30-foot) tsunami it triggered are known to have killed more than 9,000 people and more than 12,000 are still missing.
