Searching microplastics at the Underwater Gardens of La Selva
(Southern Costa Brava, Spain)

Recently theres a strong concern about the presence of plastics at sea and especially when they break up into microplastics (fragments smaller than 5mm). Most studies refer to coastal areas, but what happens at 50m deep? Moreover, what is the situation at the Underwater Gardens of La Selva (southern Costa Brava, Spain)?

We are happy to announce that shortly we will be starting a new project: Searching microplastics at the Underwater Gardens of La Selva. The objective is the detection and analysis of microplastics at the Underwater Gardens of La Selva (30-70m deep). Features considered to evaluate the effect on the zone are: type, size, colour and density.

We'll keep reporting!
