My research aims at examining the factors that influence the ingestion of microplastics by juvenile planktivorous fish and the impacts of these millimeter-sized particles on behavioural and physiological responses of the fish. The findings of my research will help better understand how microplastics enter marine food webs and their threat to juvenile fish of species that are ecologically and commercially important for the southwest Baltic Sea.
