Why are British Fish Eating Plastics?

Scientists have found tiny fragments of plastic in the digestive systems of fish pulled from the English Channel.

The discovery, by a team from Plymouth University and the UK Marine Biological Association, highlights the growing problem of plastic contamination of marine environments.

Of 504 fish examined, more than a third was found to contain small pieces of plastic less than one millimetre in size, referred to by scientists as microplastics.
