The study, previously referred to as the National Bioaccumulation Study, is a one-time screening investigation to determine the prevalence of selected bioaccumulative pollutants in fish and to identify correlations with sources of these pollutants. In addition, estimates were made of human health risks for those pollutants studied for which cancer potency factors and/or reference doses have been established. Human health risks were not estimated for dioxins and furans since the potency of these pollutants is the subject of an EPA review. Appendix C and Appendix D are contained in Volume II of the study.
