The report provides an overview of important environmental, biological, and chemical processes that affect bioaccumulation of chemical contaminants in marine and estaurine animals. In addition, the report: (1) reviews predictive and empirical approaches used to determine the bioaccumulation potential of toxic chemicals, (2) describes a method for ranking U.S. EPA priority pollutants and 301(h) pesticides in terms of bioaccumulation potential, and (3) provides guidance for selection of pollutants to analyze in 301(h) monitoring programs.
