Cobwebs in Nuclear Pool

cobwebsCan biologicals live in nuclear pools or in nuclear areas and truly thrive?

This raises an interesting issue for Radiological Protection students:
if biologicals can live in radioactive areas and thrive, how does this affect how the NRC/DOE (and Rad Pro workers) protect the safety of the workers and public.

A tangential issue might be whether the biologicals - if any exist in radioactive areas or nuclear facilities - should be protected and moved from those areas or eradicated for human safety issues (i.e. not being able to relocate the biologicals due to significant risk exposure to humans). The article (linked below) discusses how the Chernobyl area is a haven for wildlife. Could nuclear areas offer an unintended shelter for other biologicals?
