Microplastics are the tiny plastic particles which were originally plastic bottles or bags that are worn down into trillions of ever smaller particles after floating in the ocean. Debris of microplastics attach themselves to toxic substances could potentially cause poisoning to humans when we partake those fishes and seafood which have ingested microplastics.
January 2016, Japanese government and a research team from Kyushu University jointly carried maritime survey on the microplastics from Antarctic Ocean to Tokyo bay area.
And they found the surprising results.
This documentary follows how the "toxic carrier"- Microplastics threat maritime life as well as humans.
