Micro-plastics in Seafood

full events list
6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center


Paty Matrai of Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences will talk about microplastics in seafood. We know little on the impact microplastics have on phytoplankton, the base of the marine food chain. We will discuss the effects of increasing concentrations of three plastics at three concentrations on three phytoplankton species. Matrai will then explore microplastics from a grazer’s perspective: to ingest or not to ingest?
