Routine monitoring by the Food Standards Agency has indicated that some radionuclides released from Sellafield can be biologically accumulated by certain types of seaweed. In parts of Scotland seaweed is routinely used as a soil conditioner and also consumed by farm animals grazing on the foreshore. These pathways represent potential routes by which radionuclides released could enter the food chain.
