The purpose of the document is to provide the technical information and rationale in support of the methods to determine bioaccumulation factors. Bioaccumulation factors, together with the quantity of aquatic organisms eaten and the percent lipid, determine the extent to which people and wildlife are exposed to chemicals through the consumption of aquatic organisms. Bioaccumulation factors are needed to determine both human health and wildlife Tier I water quality criteria and human health Tier II values. Also, they are used to define Bioaccumulative Chemicals of Concern among the Great Lakes Initiative universe of pollutants.
