Australian waters polluted by harmful tiny plastics

Australian waters polluted by harmful tiny plastics | Cities | Scoop.it

Each square kilometre of Australian sea surface water is contaminated by around 4,000 pieces of tiny plastics, according to our study published today in journal PLOS ONE and data repository Dryad.

 

These small plastic fragments, mostly less than 5mm across, are loaded with pollutants that can negatively affect several marine species, from tiny fish and zooplankton to large turtles andwhales.

Plastic pollution hazards to Australian species and ecological communities are therefore likely broader than those officially recognised.
