Caption Im Innern der Gemeinen Miesmuschel gefundenes Mikroplastik, Mytilus edulis, vor weissem Hintergrund, spanische Atlantikkueste, Spanien, Europa Microplastiscs found inside Blue mussels or Common mussels, Mytilus edulis, on Spanish Atlantic coast. Blue mussels are subject to commercial use and intensive aquaculture in costal waters and estuaries. Blue mussels are filter feeders and play a vital role in estuaries by removing bacteria and toxins. Mytilus edulis is commonly harvested for food throughout the world, from both wild and farmed sources. Mussels are a staple of many seafood dishes in various cuisines including Spanish (especially Galician), Portuguese, French, Dutch, Belgian and Italian. The diet of Mytilus edulis consists of phytoplankton, dinoflagellates, small diatoms, zoospores, flagellates, other protozoans, various unicellular algae, and detritus filtered from the surrounding water. Blue mussels are suspension filter feeders and are considered scavengers, collecting anything in the water column that is small enough to ingest. These microplastics have ben filtered from the sea water mixed with natural food.The presence of microplastics in the seawater has been revealed as hazardous. Three possible toxic effects of plastic particle have been indicated: first due to the plastic particles themselves, second to the release of persistent organic pollutant (POPs) adsorbed to the plastics and third to the leaching of additives of the plastics. We are eating plastic particles every day indirectly by ingesting contaminated marine animals and directly through the cooking salt with which we season the food. Spain, 6211365
