Maine Researchers Find Microplastics in Larval Lobsters, The Plastic Fibers Could Affect the Animals
Scientists at the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences have discovered that microplastic pollution of the ocean is having an impact on Maine lobsters.
In a study published last month, a team of researchers reported its findings that microplastic fiber pollution in the ocean affects larval lobsters at each stage of their development. According to the report published last month in the Marine Pollution Bulletin, the tiny plastic fibers affect the animals' feeding and respiration and could even kill some larvae...
