Nanoplastics impact on marine biota: A review.

Perspectives on Micro(Nano)Plastics in the Marine Environment: Biological and Societal Considerations

Marine litter is a global problem which has been negatively affecting the environment. Plastic materials are the most commonly found marine debris, with potential biological (not only for aquatic

Nanoplastics in Aquatic Environments: Impacts on Aquatic Species and Interactions with Environmental Factors and Pollutants

Plastic production began in the early 1900s and it has transformed our way of life. Despite the many advantages of plastics, a massive amount of plastic waste is generated each year, threatening the

Nanoplastic occurrence, transformation and toxicity: a review

Nanoplastics are emerging contaminants of concern for living organisms and ecosystems, yet nanoplastics are difficult to extract and analyse. Once released into the environment, the fate and behavior

Micro and Nano Plastics Distribution in Fish as Model Organisms: Histopathology, Blood Response and Bioaccumulation in Different Organs

This review summarizes the recent results related to effects of MPs/NPs in different species of fish, both saltwater and freshwater, including zebrafish, used as model organisms for the evaluation of human health risk posed by MNPs, and describes and discusses the possible entry pathways of these particles into the fish body.

Environmental Impacts of Microplastics and Nanoplastics: A Current Overview

This paper critically analyzes the current knowledge with regard to the environmental impacts of microplastics and nanoplastics and discusses the consequent detrimental effects of these particles on humans as well as the current and future efforts at mitigating these detrimental effects.

Study of the effects of nanoplastics ingestion in a freshwater fish (Danio rerio)

Abstract Introduction The pollution by nanoplastics (NPs) has been shown in several ecosystems and aquatic biota, worldwide [1,2]. It is known that NPs can contaminate the food chain [1,2]. However,



Nanoplastics in the Aquatic Environment. Critical Review

A growing body of literature reports on the abundance and effects of plastic debris, with an increasing focus on microplastic particles smaller than 5 mm. It has often been suggested that plastic

Nano-sized polystyrene affects feeding, behavior and physiology of brine shrimp Artemia franciscana larvae.

Nano-plastics in the aquatic environment.

This review describes the possible sources of nano-sized plastic, its distribution and behavior in nature, the impact of nano -sized plastic on the well-being of aquatic organisms, and the difference of impact between nano- and micro-sized particles.
