We have long been aware of just how damaging throwing away plastic is for the environment, especially for the ocean. Today we will discuss microplastics in seafood and its affections to humans. So, without further ado, let's get into the matter.
According to the National Ocean Service (NOAA) microplastics are small pieces of plastic that end up in the water and pollute our seas. They can be harmful to our ocean and aquatic life, as they are obviously not biodegradable. How Do Microplastics Affect The Environment? The real issue is that these beads and debris are so tiny that they are able to pass through water filtration systems and eventually end up in water bodies, harming aquatic life.
