  • One of the increasing pollution loads along with the fast consuming growth in the world is microplastics which are left into the environment. 80 % of microplastic pollution in the sea moves from earth to seas. Microplastics spread toxin to water and keep hazardous contaminating chemicals on their surfaces. As a result of the ingestion of microplastics they undergo bio accumulation in the tissues and organs of organisms and they can be transfered along the food chain in the sea. In this study… CONTINUE READING
