In order to examine the accumulation pattern of tributyltin (TBT) in relation to the migratory pattern, TBT concentrations in muscles and strontium (Sr) concentrations in otoliths were determined in both sea‐run and freshwater‐resident masu salmon Oncorhynchus masou. Both TBT and Sr concentrations in sea‐run masu salmon were significantly higher than those of freshwater‐residents.
