This research takes a holistic approach to considering the consequences of marine plastic pollution. A semi-systematic literature review of 1191 data points provides the basis to determine the global ecological, social and economic impacts. An ecosystem impact analysis demonstrates that there is global evidence of impact with medium to high frequency on all subjects, with a medium to high degree of irreversibility. A novel translation of these ecological impacts into ecosystem service impacts… 
Impacts of marine plastic on ecosystem services and economy: State of South African research
In addition to its direct impacts on marine ecology and biota, marine plastic debris can affect the delivery of ecosystem services, with resulting impacts on human well-being, society and the
Are microplastics destabilizing the global network of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystem services?
TLDR
This review investigates not only the potentiality of MPs to perturb the functioning of terrestrial and aquatic biomes, but also the associated social, ecological and economic repercussions and the possible long-term fluxes in the ES network ofrestrial and aquatic niches.
The Marine Plastic Litter Issue: A Social-Economic Analysis
The issue of marine plastic litter pollution is multifaceted, cross-sectoral, and ongoing in the absence of appropriate management measures. This study analysed the issue of marine plastic litter
Marine debris: Evaluating sources, Impacts, and Practical solutions
Ocean preservation has been getting an indispensable goal for the international policy as human activities increasingly endanger the ocean ecosystem's integrity, which is usually summarized as “ocean
Impacts of Plastic Pollution on Ecosystem Services, Sustainable Development Goals, and Need to Focus on Circular Economy and Policy Interventions
Plastic pollution is ubiquitous in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Plastic waste exposed to the environment creates problems and is of significant concern for all life forms. Plastic production
Cleaner seas: reducing marine pollution
TLDR
This review draws upon the expertise of 17 experts from the fields of social sciences, marine science, visual arts, and Traditional and First Nations Knowledge Holders to present two futures; the Business-As-Usual, based on current trends and observations of growing marine pollution, and a More Sustainable Future, which imagines what their ocean could look like if the authors implemented current knowledge and technologies.
Plastic Debris in the Marine Environment: History and Future Challenges
TLDR
The history and impact of plastics in the marine environment is examined, current solutions that aim to mitigate plastics accumulation in the environment and the future challenges of plastic as a material are discussed.
Governance Strategies for Mitigating Microplastic Pollution in the Marine Environment: A Review
Threats emerging from microplastic pollution in the marine environment have received much global attention. This review assessed sources, fate, and impacts of microplastics in marine ecosystems and
Overview of global status of plastic presence in marine vertebrates.
TLDR
The analysis of 112 studies indicates the highest plastic ingestion in organisms collected in the Mediterranean and Northeast Indian Ocean with significant differences among plastic-types ingested by different groups of animals, including differences in colour and the type of prevalent polymers.
A decision framework for estimating the cost of marine plastic pollution interventions.
TLDR
A decision support framework is developed to identify the economic, social, and ecological costs and benefits of plastic pollution interventions for different sectors and stakeholders and provides an approach to estimate and compare the costs of a range of interventions across sociopolitical and economic contexts.

Impacts of Biodiversity Loss on Ocean Ecosystem Services
Human-dominated marine ecosystems are experiencing accelerating loss of populations and species, with largely unknown consequences. We analyzed local experiments, long-term regional time series, and
Interactions of microplastic debris throughout the marine ecosystem
TLDR
The concept of microplastic as a complex, dynamic mixture of polymers and additives, to which organic material and contaminants can successively bind to form an ‘ecocorona’, increasing the density and surface charge of particles and changing their bioavailability and toxicity is developed.
Biodiversity and human well-being: an essential link for sustainable development
TLDR
It is suggested that a consensus framework for sustainable development should include biodiversity explicitly as a suite of internal variables that both influence and are influenced by HWB, and can inadvertently lead to a ratcheting down of biodiversity by otherwise well-meaning policies.
Energy systems and their impacts on marine ecosystem services
Global warming and its link to the burning of fossil fuels has prompted many governments around the world to set legally binding greenhouse gas reduction targets which are to be partially realised
Factors That Can Undermine the Psychological Benefits of Coastal Environments
TLDR
It was shown that litter can undermine the psychological benefits that the coast ordinarily provides, thus demonstrating that, in addition to environmental costs of marine litter, there are also costs to people.
Current Status and Future Prospects for the Assessment of Marine and Coastal Ecosystem Services: A Systematic Review
TLDR
The cataloging of MCES indicators and the integrated classification ofMCES provided in this paper establish a background that can facilitate the planning and integration of future assessments and establish a consistent structure and populate it with information able to support the implementation of biodiversity conservation policies.
Global estimates of the value of ecosystems and their services in monetary units
