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:
4 (not assignable)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
results derived from a valid (Q)SAR model and falling into its applicability domain, with limited documentation / justification
