The 210Po content of brown shrimp and edible crab has been measured in monthly samples over one year to investigate possible seasonal changes.
The highest value measured in shrimp was found in August for hepatopancreas tissue.
Tailmuscle values were significantly lower than those in the hepatopancreas but followed a similar trend, with the highest value being measured in August.
However, in neither tissue were these statistically significant changes correlated with time.
No statistically significant difference was found between male and female crab brown meat 210Po.
There was no statistically significant variation in the brown meat 210Po content of female crabs over the period of the study.
