Description of key information

The bioaccumulation factor (BCF) in bluegill sunfish was determined to be 140. Residues were eliminated rapidly when the fish were transferred to clean water.


The results indicate that captan is unlikely to accumulate in the aquatic environment or pose a significant risk to fish predators. Additionally bioaccumlative potential in respect to PBT properties is negligible.
