    Abstract

    A two-day national conference on marine debris here has called for the formulation of a policy by the Centre to combat the menace of growing marine debris in oceans, which the meet described as one of the biggest threats to the aquatic ecosystem. The conference, which concluded at the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI), was organised by the Marine Biological Association of India. The plenary session of the conference stressed the need for a policy to protect the marine and estuarine ecosystem and fishery resources, said a release. Researchers had found the presence of micro-plastics in fish, indicating that they had entered the marine food chain. “Stringent rules and regulations are the need of the hour to control the situation of accumulating plastic debris in the marine ecosystem,” the conference said.
