Microplastic in deepest oceans

Microplastic found in deepest ocean animals - "We are piling all our crap into the place we know least about." - Alan Jamieson from Newcastle University's School of Natural and Environmental Sciences (source: Royal Society Open Science) - The team confirmed how widespread and consequent the plastic contamination proved to be.

Des micro-plastiques trouvés chez les animaux vivant au plus profond des océans – « Nous accumulons tous nos rebuts dans l'endroit sur lequel nous en savons le moins. » - Alan Jamieson de Newcastle University's School of Natural and Environmental Sciences (source : Royal Society Open Science) - L’équipe a confirmé à quel point la contamination plastique était généralisée et conséquente.

Any suggestion, improvement…? Many thanks and please, contact us…

  • Plastic particles through animals

    "These particles could just pass straight through the animal, but in the animals we looked at they must be blocking them. The equivalent would be for you to swallow a 2-metre polypropylene rope and expect that not to have an adverse affect on your health," said Jamieson. - Patrick Galey (phys.org - Feb. 2019)
