The study is just the latest in a long string of research on the harmful effects of plastic on marine organisms. The problem is that when plastic is dumped into the ocean, it doesn't exactly decompose — rather, it breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces. Once it reaches a certain size, it's referred to as "microplastic." more
