Description of key information

Additional information

In general it is considered that bioaccumulation is the process by which the chemical concentration in an aquatic organism achieves a level that exceeds that in the water, as a result of chemical uptake through all possible routes of exposure. The relationship between bioaccumulation and bio-concentration is that, chemicals that have the potential to bioconcentrate also have the potential to bioaccumulate.

So, based on this information the estimated BCF factor of diiodohydroxyquinolineis estimated to be 200. This value indicates that diiodohydroxyquinolineis not expected to bioaccumulate in the food chain because it does not exceed the EPA bioconcentration criteria of 1000.
