Administrative data

Endpoint:
bioaccumulation in aquatic species: fish
Type of information:
calculation (if not (Q)SAR)
Remarks:
estimated by calculation
Adequacy of study:
disregarded due to major methodological deficiencies
Reliability:
3 (not reliable)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
results derived from a valid (Q)SAR model, but not (completely) falling into its applicability domain, and documentation / justification is limited
Remarks:
validity of model is suspect for substance
