Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

Scientific Reports has published, Anthropogenic debris in seafood: Plastic debris and fibers from textiles in fish and bivalves sold for human consumption. The authors sampled seafood from Indonesia and the US, finding anthropogenic debris in the digestive tracts of 28% and 25% of individual fish, respectively. You may download the full-text using the link above. There's been a lively discussion of this and other similar ongoing research over on our sister listserv, MarineDebris.Info. If you're interested in joining the conversation, signup here.

As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let me know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email me directly at nwehner [at] openchannels.org.

Happy reading,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager
