Conclusions:
Low bioconcentration in fresh water fish
Executive summary:

The bioconcentration was low in the carp. The values ranged between 4 and 6.3 at test material concentration of 10 µg/L and 3.9 to 8.1 µg/L at 100 µg/L (NITE; 2002).

Description of key information

Bioconcentration was low in fish. Values ranged betweeen 3.9 and 8.1
