We are holding this open public meeting to share findings on plastics in food cod, and receive feedback from attendees on how we might proceed in the future. Everyone is welcome!
What are anticolonial ways of respecting animals in research that include but exceed institutional values of replacement (of animals with non-animals), reduction (of the number of animals needed), and refinement (of studies)?
Microplastics can easily disappear between rocks when beaches aren’t sandy. We are working to develop the Fogo Protocol
Microplastics are less than 5mm in size, so they are often missed in beach clean ups. This protocol counts microplastics on sandy beaches.
Your can use beach clean ups to create data about local marine macroplastics. This protocol uses the Marine Debris Tracker so data goes into a public data set that scientists can use.
