Microplastic pollution is globally recognized as a significant threat for marine ecosystems. Several studies have been monitoring the large amount of microplastics found floating at the sea surface and deposited on the seabed or stranded on the coastline. Nevertheless, many questions are still missing the right answers. What are the impacts of microplastics to marine biota worldwide? How can plastic debris act as a vector for contaminants in deep-sea and coastal marine systems? How can we measure the scale of the economic impact of microplastic pollution? This Special Issue aims to encourage researchers to address these questions and others related to this topic, develop new ideas and new methodologies to assess microplastic pollution impacts.
