Abstract
The concentrations of Pu239+240 and Cs-137 in zooplankton and nekton in the Northwest Pacific and Southern Oceans were measured during the period 1993-1996. The object of the sampling was to assess the potential impacts of existing submerged anthropogenic-radioactive materials in the western North Pacific as well as the East China Sea. Samples from the Bransfield Strait of the Antarctic Ocean provided a control source impacted by only atmospheric bomb fallout. No particularly elevated levels of Pu239+240 were found in zooplankton samples from the Northwest Pacific, although significantly lower levels of Pu239+240 were found in three mixed zooplankton samples from the Bransfield Strait. The body burden of Pu239+240 in zooplankton appears to reflect concentrations in ambient seawater with some variation. Some additional Measurements Of Cs-137 in fish are also reported here to complement existing databases and for future reference in the regional marine en,. iron men tal radioactivity monitoring effort.
