Scampi stuffed with plastic
Fishing net fibres clogging marine life stomachs
April 2011. A study by Scottish scientists has found that 83% of Langoustines, also known as Scampi or Norway lobster, have indigestible plastic fibres in their stomachs, usually in the form of clogging balls. The impacts on their health are unknown, but Buglife – The Invertebrate Conservation Trust wants more action to protect the fishery and other wild animals from plastic pollution.
UK fishery worth £95.8 million
Fibres are thought to come from fishing nets, and particularly ‘chafers’ that are designed to drag along the sea bed and shed fibres of plastic.
Buglife calls for a solution to plastic fibre pollution and for more research to understand how the build up of plastic in the guts of crabs and shrimps affects their health and survival rates.
