“…The application of stable isotope analysis to migratory fishes used in microplastic loading studies could thus link the trophic ecology of individuals with levels of environmental contaminants (Garcia et al, 2021;. As Menéndez et al (2022) found that river and seawater microplastic contamination predicted the contamination levels of individual eels from rivers draining into the Bay of Biscay, the differences in plastic loadings with the authors' study might reflect differences in abiotic microplastic loads between the study locations. The use of samples here that had already been collected for a separate study meant that there was no opportunity to concomitantly collect and analyse abiotic water and/or sediment samples to investigate this further.…”

“…Although it is possible that juvenile eels in the system are highly susceptible to microplastic contamination and so survivorship bias prevented the observation of higher incidences and loadings above a single particle, the data presented by Menéndez et al (2022) for eels in the Bay of Biscay suggest eels can have much higher plastic loadings than the authors detected and still survive. This further emphasises that the lower frequency of occurrence and loadings in eels in this study was probably more reflective of a lower microplastic contamination in the sampled fresh waters.…”
