Microplastic Particles Attach to Sea Grass

On February 6, 2020, researchers with Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland reported finding microplastic flakes, fibers or fragments sticking or adhering to sea grass in bays surrounding the Orkney Islands – https://www.hw.ac.uk/news/articles/2020/microplastics.htm – The researchers found the average number of microplastics in sea snails and other grazing creatures matched the average number found on the seagrass blades, suggesting that seagrass grazers may be exposed to more microplastics than sediment-dwelling organisms – #Microplastics #PlasticPackaging #FoodPackaging #PlasticWaste
