Additional information

A fish bioaccumulation study is available for the analogue substance C12 fatty acid-sodium laurate which showed negligible evidence of bioaccumulation potential in fish tissues with an estimated BCF of 225 L/kg after 28 days exposure.

As fatty acids are naturally stored in the form of triacylglycerols primarily within fat tissue until they are used for energy production (fat storage tactic), it is therefore considered that there will be no risk to aquatic organisms from potential bioconcentration/biomagnification of fatty acids.
