How Plastic Pollution Contaminates the Food Chain

 

Dr. Ceri Lewis and team at the University of Exeter have proven an obvious destination for microplastic: in the guts of aquatic animals near the bottom of the food chain.  Do all you fishermen see the ramifications?  Plastic pollution's weakening of the aquatic foodchain means fewer fish, more algal blooms, and ripple effects for agriculture and everyone's food security.  This is why it is critical to stop and remediate plastic pollution everywhere.
