A Japanese whaling vessel and its crew were being held in Russia on Friday after the ship entered Russian territorial waters without permission, Tokyo said.

(Reuters) - A small number of water samples taken near the site of a major spill at Imperial Metals Corp's Mount Polley mine have shown copper levels high enough to pose a risk to fish, British Columbia officials said on Friday, but the copper did not exceed drinking water guidelines. Two samples taken deep in Quesnel Lake on Aug. 12 showed high concentrations of copper, 134 micrograms per liter and 217 micrograms per liter, according to documents posted by the province on Friday. To meet water quality guidelines for even short-term or "acute" exposure for fish, copper levels should be 8.5 micrograms per liter or less. Four other samples narrowly exceeded chronic or acute guidelines for copper exposure by aquatic life.
