Counts, Fish Weights, and Spectral Data from a Juvenile Chinook Salmon Polyester Microplastic Fiber Exposure Study
This release includes all data collected in support of a juvenile Chinook salmon exposure study designed to understand the retention of microplastic clothing fibers (hereon referred to as "microfibers") after feeding. To understand the potential impacts of microfiber ingestion to fish, we ran a feeding experiment with juvenile Chinook salmon to determine if ingested fibers are retained and/or digestion rates altered over a full, experimentally determined, 10 day digestion period. Data includes: fish weights, microfiber counts, and quality assurance (QA) data for the experiment. QA steps are detailed in the process section of the metadata.
