Effect and fate study with blue mussels and microplastic in a laboratory experiment

Aurelia Laubscher, Thea Hamm & Mark Lenz
Adult blue mussels (Mytilus spp.) were exposed to microplastic particles in a controlled laboratory experiment. The study was conducted to investigate I) the effect of polystyrene particles (spherical PS beads, 40µm) on the filtration of mussels and II) the fate of PS beads within the experimental set up. The data was obtained in May and June 2019 with mussels collected from the Kiel Fjord, Germany. The mussels were exposed in a closed system to an...
