Juvenile herring (Clupea harengus) were fed an experimental diet of squid containing [ C]-labelled hexadecane and benzo[a]pyrene and the distribution of activity in various tissues and organs was assayed 43-45 h later. 24-25% of the activity fed was recovered in the tissues and organs examined but the distribution of activity in these was quite different for each hydrocarbon. Most of the hexadecane recovered was found in the muscle but most of the benzo[a]pyrene remained in the stomach.
