Plastic & Heavy Metal marine Debris

Plastic debris clutters the aquatic environment globally contaminating a diversity of organisms and habitats. It is composed of several different polymers, and their unique chemical ingredients may make some types of plastic more harmful than others. Metals, such as lead and cadmium, are often used in manufacturing of plastic and over time can enter coastal waters. In recent years, discarded plastic has become a progressively predominant pollutant in aquatic ecosystems. These plastic wastes decompose into microplastics, which not only pose a direct threat to aquatic organisms but also an indirect threat via adsorption of other aquatic pollutants.
