Widespread accumulation and distribution of microplastics at the sea surface raise concerns as the habitat is a feeding ground for zooplankton. As primary consumers, these organisms are closely connected to microplastic input in the marine food chain. Little comparative information currently exists about this problem in estuary and offshore systems. This study investigates microplastic distribution in the surface water and the potential ingestion of microplastics in selected taxonomic groups of zooplankton from the Terengganu Estuary to offshore waters, Malaysia.
