Abstract  

Lake Obuchi is on the Shimokita Peninsula, Aomori Prefecture, Japan, near several nuclear fuel-related facilities. The lake contains from oligohaline to polyhaline regions, and the salinity fluctuates greatly both spatially and temporally. This study examined the possible effect of salinity on biological concentrations of 137Cs in phytoplankton on the basis of a culture experiment using stable Cs and phytoplankton species isolated from the lake. In both Cyclotellaand Skeletonema, the biological concentrations of Cs varied with salinity conditions, and a positive linear relation was found between maximum proliferation and biological concentrations of Cs.
