Triclocarban bioaccumulation is possible in a number of organisms. Earthworms are known to store this chemical in their bodies and, because of their ecological role as a food source, they have the potential to move triclocarban up the food chain.  Microbial species found in soils also bioaccumulate triclocarban. However, the health of these microbes has not been found to be affected by the presence of the chemical.  Triclocarban is rapidly accumulated in both algae and adult caged snails.  Moreover, triclocarban is more likely than triclosan to bioaccumulate in aquatic organisms.
