[…] the study of plastic contamination. by using rovs the exact location and habitat is known, as the collections are made using a suction hose or manipulator arm and deposited into sample containers (bioboxes – made of plastic but not of the type and colour found). these sampling methods limit the potential for contamination by surrounding sediments and reduce trauma, maintaining the structural […]
