Contamination des poissons d’eau douce par les microplastiques

Abstract : In recent years an emerging suite of contaminants, plastics, have received increased attention due to the fact that those particles have been detected in marine ecosystems across the world while posing risk to the biota. In contrast to the marine environment, freshwater ecosystems received less attention although the vast majority of plastic is produced onshore and finally is introduced into the marine environment by rivers. Recent scientific evidence confirms that freshwater is also contaminated by microplastics. Based on a novel methodology specifically developed, INERIS’ works are the first demonstrating that fish living in rivers ingest microplastics. However, further studies are needed to assess adverse effects associated with this contamination.
