A mathematical model that computes the accumulation of Kepone in the striped bass food chain of the James River estuary was developed. The purpose of the model was to help understand the relationship of Kepone levels in important fish species to sediment and water column Kepone concentrations and then to address the question of why these levels still exceed Food and Drug administration limits 8 years after discharge stopped. The model considers exposure through diet and respiration at rates based on species bioenergetics. It was successfully calibrated to observe striped bass, white perch, and Atlantic croaker Kepone concentrations. (Copyright (c) 1985 Academic Press Inc. (London) Limited.)
