Microplastics in surface water samples from Placentia Bay, Newfoundland (2018-2019)

This data was collected between 2018 and 2019 at 7 sites around Placentia Bay. Two of these sites were subject to repeat sampling. Surface water samples were collected in collaboration with local fish harvesters, who aided the team in towing a surface trawl (the Low-Tech Aquatic Debris Instrument, or LADI, a DIY citizen-science technology developed by the Civic Laboratory for Environmental Action Research) equipped with a plankton net for the filtering of surface waters for microplastics.

Microplastic samples were analysed visually under a stereomicroscope for the identification and characterization of microplastics down to a lower size limit of 1mm.

This project is part of Fisheries and Oceans Canada's Coastal Environmental Baseline Program.

Des échantillons d&#39;eau de surface ont été collectés en collaboration avec des pêcheurs locaux, qui ont aidé l&#39;équipe à remorquer un chalut de surface (le *Low-Tech Aquatic Debris Instrument*, ou ‘LADI’, une technologie de bricolage citoyenne développée par le *Civic Laboratory for Environmental Action Research*) équipé avec un filet à plancton pour le filtrage des eaux de surface pour les microplastiques. Les échantillons microplastiques ont été analysés visuellement sous un stéréomicroscope pour l&#39;identification et la caractérisation des microplastiques jusqu&#39;à une limite de taille inférieure à 1 mm. Ce projet fait partie du Programme sur les données environnementales côtières de référence de Pêches et Océan Canada (MPO).</lan:LocalisedCharacterString> </lan:textGroup> </lan:PT_FreeText> </mri:abstract> <mri:credit> <gco:CharacterString></gco:CharacterString> </mri:credit> <mri:status> <mcc:MD_ProgressCode codeList="http://standards.iso.org/iso/19115/resources/Codelists/cat/codelists.xml#MD_ProgressCode" codeListValue="completed"></mcc:MD_ProgressCode> </mri:status> <mri:topicCategory> <mri:MD_TopicCategoryCode>oceans</mri:MD_TopicCategoryCode> </mri:topicCategory> <mri:extent> <gex:EX_Extent> <gex:geographicElement> <gex:EX_BoundingPolygon> <gex:extentTypeCode> <gco:Boolean>true</gco:Boolean> </gex:extentTypeCode> <gex:polygon> <gml:Polygon gml:id="a1"> <gml:exterior> <gml:LinearRing> <gml:coordinates>-55.241367526148,47.13318059533826 -54.03287145150085,46.75252399555157 -53.76095983495322,47.479584530843795 -54.04111119745684,47.89558933645629 -55.241367526148,47.13318059533826</gml:coordinates> </gml:LinearRing> </gml:exterior> </gml:Polygon> </gex:polygon> </gex:EX_BoundingPolygon> </gex:geographicElement> </gex:EX_Extent> </mri:extent> <mri:extent> <gex:EX_Extent> <gex:verticalElement> <gex:EX_VerticalExtent> <gex:minimumValue> <gco:Real>0.0</gco:Real> </gex:minimumValue> <gex:maximumValue> <gco:Real>5.0</gco:Real> </gex:maximumValue> <gex:verticalCRSId> <mrs:MD_ReferenceSystem> <mrs:referenceSystemIdentifier> <mcc:MD_Identifier> <mcc:code> <gco:CharacterString>5831</gco:CharacterString> </mcc:code> <mcc:codeSpace> <gco:CharacterString>EPSG</gco:CharacterString> </mcc:codeSpace> <mcc:version> <gco:CharacterString>2012-08-10</gco:CharacterString> </mcc:version> <mcc:description> <gco:CharacterString>EPSG::5831 - Instantaneous Water Level depth - Depth relative to instantaneous water level uncorrected for tide.
