- Marine plastic ingestion rates for all species of fish from published studies (as of 2017). CLEAR conducted a systematic literature review of published English-language ingestion rates of all species of fish, globally. We obtained 22 published studies and disaggregated their ingestion data by species, which provided 242 individual ingestion rates for 207 different species in 64 families. This table is available here, and is published as supplementary material in: Liboiron, F., Ammendolia, J., Saturno, J., Melvin, J., Zahara, A., Richárd, N., & Liboiron, M.(2018). A zero percent plastic ingestion rate by silver hake (Merluccius bilinearis) from the south coast of Newfoundland, Canada. Marine Pollution Bulletin, 131, 267-275.
