When Michel Bariche cut open the giant Bluefin tuna he had caught, it was like breaking open a pinata.The Bluefin tuna is listed as an endangered species, however, the fish is considered a delicacy and is often used in sushi.According to Bariche, there is no local research on the impact of plastic pollution in the sea on marine life, as experts in the field are scarce.While the absence of local research means there are no nationwide figures, the Mediterranean is estimated to have 1,000 to 3,000 tons of plastic floating on its surface, according to a 2015 study.Nader also agreed there was a lack of research on the effects of plastics on marine life, however, said it would be near impossible to measure, especially with macroplastics.
