Auckland University scientists are feeding microplastics to fish to find out if it ends up in their flesh. In a two-part experiment, Masters student Veronica Rotman has been feeding microplastics to captive snapper at Niwa's aquaculture research facility near Whangarei. She talks to Karyn Kay about that research and the plastic scientists are finding in wild hoki populations.
