Abstract

In general, transuranium elements form relatively insoluble compounds in the marine environment and therefore are not considered biologically mobile. Their interaction with biological systems is largely passive and they tend to attach, sometimes strongly, to the external surfaces of marine organisms. Although concentration factors are usually low and decrease with trophic level, seaweed represents the critical pathway for their transfer from the marine environment to man.
