The purpose of this document is to provide the technical information and rational in support of the proposed procedures to determine bioaccumulation factors (BAFs). This document contains six sections: (1) Introduction; (2) BAFs based on the concentration of the freely dissolved chemical in water; (3) Prediction of bioconcentration factors (BCFs); (4) Food chain multipliers based on the 1993 Gobas model; (5) BAFs from biota-sediment accumulation factor (BSAF) measurements; (6) Bioaccumulation Equivalency Factors (BEFs); and (7) Derivation of BAFs for twenty-two chemicals. Bioaccumulation factors are needed to determine both human and wildlife Tier I water quality criteria and Tier II values. Also, they are used to define Bioaccumulative Chemicals of Concern among the Great Lakes Initiative universe of pollutants.
