The amount of plastics in the marine increasing these days that not only going to affect those big fishes in the marine, it going to affect each small even micro-sized flee in the marine. Generally, these marine creatures eat the other prey based on their sizes and some eat those coral reefs. In this case, these microplastics get attached or sediment over it here when it eats them automatically the organism which eats this going to get them inside their intestine.

This intake of microplastics will entirely change the feeding processes of an organism and when they get eaten by the fish this microplastic going to get inside them. This is how these microfibers are killing fish and that entering the human food cycle. Not only the fish these microplastics are also affecting the turtles, and other marine creatures.
