De­bris in fish guts

Down to Earth - - SCIENCE -

R O U G H LY A quar­ter of the fish sam­pled from fish mar­kets in Cal­i­for­nia and In­done­sia con­tained hu­man-made de­bris—plas­tic or fi­brous ma­te­rial—in their guts. Hu­mans would end up con­sum­ing the plas­tics in case they eat the whole fish. The re­searchers be­lieve the type of de­bris in the fish is driven by dif­fer­ences in lo­cal waste man­age­ment.
