Laboratory experiments using radioactive tracer were performed to study the uptake and elimination of137Cs by theAbudefduf saxatilis. A compartmental model (AnaComp Program) has estimated the transfer rates of the radioactivity through the sea-water and fish compartments as well as the dose caused by the consumption of a contaminated fish.
