Plastish

“Filter feeders and sediment feeders and organisms that feed on the surface layer of the lake, all swallow these plastic particles mistaking them for food. … [then] when fish are feeding on these organisms they accumulate these particles also in their tissue.” (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-24434378)

Human populations using fresh water for drinking and agriculture are concerned, but supermarkets are delighted that fish are self-wrapping.
