Abstract: The presence of plastic debris in the environment has become a top priority issue recognized at the highest levels of government, members of the public, and the scientific community. Despite over a decade of research, information is lacking on the transport and effects of small pieces of plastics (microplastics (MPs)) in ecosystems. Plastics are highly persistent in the environment and can fragment into smaller sizes that sorb toxic substances onto their surface or within polymer matrices, and these MPs present unique exposure scenarios to organisms that are difficult to investigate. Organisms (including humans) ingest MPs, but there is minimal evidence that MPs are absorbed across epithelial membranes or accumulate in internal tissues. Filter feeding marine organisms (e.g., mussels) can accumulate MPs within the lumen of their digestive tract and subsequently lead to human exposure to MPs, but how does this level of exposure compare to other sources of MP exposure in humans? This presentation will discuss some of the evidence and speculation surrounding the environmental issues of MPs and consider some of the priority issues that remain to be investigated.
