In recent years, the escalating global concern about plastic pollution has shifted the spotlight onto a microscopic adversary: microplastics. These tiny particles, with a diameter less than five millimeters, pose a significant and often invisible threat to marine ecosystems. As researchers delve into the intricate
web of marine life, alarming evidence emerges of the infiltration of microplastics into organisms across the entire oceanic spectrum.
Microplastics originate from various sources, including the degradation of larger plastic debris, microbeads in personal care products, and the shedding of synthetic fibers from textiles. These microscopic particles infiltrate oceans worldwide, propelled by ocean currents and winds. Their pervasiveness has turned them into silent invaders, spreading through marine habitats from the ocean surface to the seafloor.
