Description/Abstract:
DETERMINATIONS OF THE POTASSIUM LEVELS OF LIGHT AND DARK MUSCLE TISSUE S WERE MADE FOR TUNA FISH SAMPLES FROM THE CENTRAL PACIFIC. THE MEAN POTASSIUM CONTENT WAS DETERMINED TO BE 2.3 MILLIGRAMS PER GRAM FOR TH ESE TISSUES AND WAS USED AS AN INDEX TO CALCULATE THE RADIOACTIVITY TO BE EXPECTED FROM K40 AT 4.2 DISINTEGRATIONS PER MINUTE PER GRAM OF W ET TISSUE. THE LEVELS OF POTASSIUM IN LIGHT AND DARD MUSCLE SAMPLES W ERE NOT SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT.
