Raw data: fish vs plastic experiment

A multi sheet Excel workbook showing the raw data collected during the experiments testing the effect of plastic exposure on Acanthacromis polyacanthus.

Experiment 1: growth, ingestion, and behavioural data over 6 week exposure to PET particles ~2mm

Experiment 2: the effect of particle size on rate of consumption/plastic retention in the gut.

The full methodology is available in the Open Access publication from the Related Publications link below.
