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 consumption and physiological response in Acartia clausi and Centropages typicus: Possible roles of feeding mechanisms

Multi-day experiments were carried out with two Marmara Sea calanoid copepod species: Acartia clausi and Centropages typicus, to assess the possible role of the type of feeding on the consumption of microplastics and its influence on the rate of energy metabolism of these species. In a mixture of microplastic beads (6 mu m diameter) and algae Rhodomonas salina (5-10 mu m size range) with equal concentrations of about 5000 cells/beads mL(-1) the ambush feeder A. clausi consumed almost 5 times less microplast...
