Microplastic Consumption by Larval Fish Interferes with Normal Growth

According to a January 8, 2020 American Association for the Advancement of Science Eureka Alert News Release, titled "The effects of microplastics on organisms in coastal areas" researchers with the University of Toronto, University of North Carolina-Wilmington and Oregon State University "... demonstrated the transfer of microplastics through the food chain between microscopic prey and larval fish that live in coastal ecosystems. They also found that microplastic ingestion interferes with normal growth in fish larvae …" - Their research is published in a January 7, 2010 Limnology & Oceanography Letters report at - #SingleUsePlastics #FoodPackaging #PlasticWaste #PlasticPackaging #MicroPlastic #NanoPlastic
