We have investigated incorporation of $$^{90}$$Sr and $$^{137}$$Cs in teeth of cattle and otoliths of fish. Specific activity of $$^{90}$$Sr in the dentin tissue was higher than that in the enamel tissue. The result shows change of $$^{90}$$Sr incorporation in cattle even within a tooth. Concentrations of stable Sr and Cs were 94 ppm and 3 ppb. Distributions of stable Sr and Cs were uniform in the otolith of fish. If distribution of $$^{90}$$Sr and $$^{137}$$Cs in the otolith was measured, change of $$^{90}$$Sr and $$^{137}$$Cs incorporation into the fish would be found. These findings suggest that distribution patterns of $$^{90}$$Sr and $$^{137}$$Cs in the environment could be estimated from distribution of the radionuclides in the tooth and otolith.
