Job Description:
Microplastic Research Team members have access to a wide range of samples, which are processed and analyzed in simple laboratory facilities and can be send to specialized laboratories for further analysis. Analysis carried out since 2009 shows that almost 100% of fish and marine invertebrates examined contained microplastics fibers in their stomachs, as did the majority of sediment samples. Archipelagos’ goal is to identify the main source of influx of microplastics into the Aegean and verify whether they are indeed traveling through the food chain, from plankton to top predators. Projects focus on the assessment of microplastic fiber content of:
• sediment samples from the islands of Samos/Lipsi/Ikaria.
• surface seawater samples collected via kayaks/boat surveys.
• fish and macroinvetrebrates
• marine mammals and turtles found in strandings
• Processing and statistical analysis of the data obtained.
• Writing of a scientific publications.
