Publikasjon: Quantification of microplastic in fillet and organs of farmed and wild salmonids - a comparison of methods for detection and quantification - SALMODETECT
Microplastic (MP) is of growing concern to environmentaland humanhealth. Thisstudy investigated three analytical approachesto measure MPin tissues of salmonids. The studyaimed to 1) determine and demonstrate the sensitivity of current analytical methods for MP in salmon tissues for the three different quantitative methods, 2) compare the utility of the different methods in terms of cost, time and sensitivity 3) quantify MP in a relevant selection of tissues of farmedand wildsalmon in order to establish likely indicator organs for future documentation purposes. We here present the results, compare themethodsand discuss uncertainties and needs for further method development.
