Abstract The report presents the results of a monitoring program, conducted in 1981 and 1982, by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to measure concentrations of man-made radionuclides in seafoods to determine effects from previous U.S. ocean disposals of low-level radioactive wastes (LLW). Commercially-marketed seafood samples were collected from Boston, Massachusetts, Atlantic City, New Jersey and San Francisco, California. Each of these cities is near a previously-used U.S. ocean disposal site for LLW. The data obtained during this monitoring program shows that the concentrations of man-made radioactivity in seafoods sampled are below levels of public health concern. The data is considered to be of normal background level, attributable to global fallout over the oceans.
