Hazardous substance concentrations must equal or exceed lowest human food chain benchmark concentration (or indices I or J must equal or exceed 1); must also meet criteria for an observed release.
Concentrations of hazardous substances must be measured in a tissue sample from a non-sessile or non-benthic human food chain organism taken from within the boundary of actual food chain contamination and from a species that spends extended periods of time within this boundary.
The specific hazardous substance which is compared to its benchmark must also be present in an aqueous, sediment or benthic sample that establishes actual food chain contamination for the fishery.
