This self-initiated illustration is to accompany a study about microplastics and our seafood:
Because of their small size, microplastics can be ingested by a wide variety of marine organisms. Ingestion may be direct or indirect via trophic transfer (e.g., up the food web). Microplastic ingestion has been documented in planktonic organisms and larvae at the bottom of the food chain, in small and large invertebrates and in fish.
