Consumption rates of polystyrene microplastics (beads of 6, 12, and 26 mu m diameter) and their effects on energy metabolism and motor activity of the copepod Calanus helgolandicus living in the Marmara Sea were investigated. All sizes of microplastic particles were actively consumed and excreted via fecal pellets, however, copepods displayed a significant preference for beads sized 6 mu m. In a mixture of algae and microplastics beads of 6 mu m, microplastics consumption rates linearly (r(2) = 0.78, n = 15...

Marine litter and microplastic pollution is a growing problem for the world and Turkish seas. In this study, the levels of microplastics in surface water, water column, sediment as well as in fish digestive system from the northeastern Mediterranean Sea were studied in 2015 and 2016. The impact of virgin microplastics on seabream juveniles was also investigated at the laboratory. Number of microplastics in surface water were between 16339 and 520213 particles km-2 in 2015, and, between 39559 and 1043675 pa...

Microplastic pollution of marine environment is receiving increased publicity over the last few years. The present survey is, according to our knowledge, the survey with the largest sample size analyzed, to date. In total, 1337 specimens of fish were examined for the presence of plastic microlitter representing 28 species and 14 families. In addition, samples of seawater and sediment were also analyzed for the quantification of microplastic in the same region. Samples of water/sediment were collected from 1...
