About Program

Archipelagos’ goal is to identify the main source of influx of microplastics into the Aegean Sea, as well as assessing the amount of microplastics present in the environment. Microplastic fiber content is collected, filtered and quantified through microscope analysis from samples of:
• Digestive systems of commercialized fish and invertebrates
• Digestive systems of stranded marine animals (e.g. dolphins, sea turtles)
• Surface seawater and water column samples collected through kayak and boat surveys
• Sediment samples of various habitats (e.g. wetlands, seabeds)
