The activity concentrations of and within phytoplankton-zooplankton-anchovy-mackerel in the coastal water of the Jeju Island were determined to understand their distribution and bio-accumulation along the trophic level. In the surface water, the total activity concentrations of and were and . And the dissolved activity concentration of and were and respectively. In the phytoplankton, the concentration factor (CF) of and were and shows is 5 times higher compared to . The similar CF factor in the zooplankton of was derived as . The CF of in anchovy was increased twice compared to that in plankton. This is the evidence that there is bio-magnification in the trophic level of plankton-anchovy. However the activity concentration in the muscle tissue of mackerel was one-hundred times lower than that in anchovy. This reflects that in the trophic level of anchovy-mackerel, the bio-accumulation of is decreased. The activity concentrations of in the internal organs of anchovy and mackerel were 8 to 38 times higher than those in muscle tissues. In phytoplankton-zooplankton-anchovy, the CF of was decreased five times along the trophic level in order. In anchovy-mackerel it was decreased by 30-70%.
