I think you'll find that the dissolved oxygen is only there because there's an abundance of oxygen in the atmosphere here on Earth. On Mars, there is no (0%) oxygen content in the atmosphere (which is only 0.01% as dense as on Earth anyway); so, there would be ZERO oxygen dissolved in the water on Mars.

I hate feeding trolls; but, the Fukushima reactors are an American design. They were a 2nd generation GE BWR plant design using a 1st generation containment design from the early 1960's, which TEPCO, Toshiba and Hitachi continued to copy. They also appear to have not incorporated any of the safety updates implemented in U.S. plants of the same design. There are quite a few plants, in the U.S., still operating, that are of similar design.
