Hidden life on marine plastics

My journey with microplastics began back in 2019 when I investigated microplastic ingestion by common anchovies and sardines in Sri Lanka and Australia. In Sinhalese, these species are referred to as Haalmassa (Stolephorus commersonnii), Saalaya (Sardinella gibbosa), and Hurulla (Ablygaster sirm), and all of these are popular seafood choices of Sri Lankans.
