Abstract Simple bioconcentration models (1-5) and relatively complex food chain models (6-9) have been used to predict the accumulation of resistant organic compounds in aquatic organisms. Other models based on fugacities have been used to estimate distributions of compounds in idealized environments including organisms (10-12). Selection of a model depends on the availability of input data and the objectives of the study. The accuracy of the model prediction, however, depends upon (1) the accuracy of the input variables; (2) the validity of the model for predicting the modeled process; and (3) limitations in the range of applicability of the model including, for environmental studies, the importance of the process that is modeled in determining the total bioaccumulation in the organism.
