Article
Anthropogenic pollution is considered one of the main threats to the marine environment, and there is an imperious need to assess its potential impact on ecologically and economically relevant species. This study characterises plastic ingestion and tissue levels of potentially toxic metallic elements in Nephrops norvegicus and their simultaneous le...
Article
The European anchovy (Engraulis encrasicolus) is a small pelagic fish with an outstanding commercial value supporting important fisheries and is a key component of pelagic ecosystems in the Mediterranean Sea. Progressive reductions in the population size of this species has been observed in the Mediterranean Sea during recent decades, accompanied b...
Article
The present study provides a baseline assessment of the prevalence and densities of splenic melanomacrophage centres (MMCs) in 18 fish species from the NW Mediterranean Sea related to spatiotemporal and environmental factors and fish traits. Their correlation with other established health indicators, such as body condition indices (condition factor...
Article
Although the ingestion of plastics has been reported in a wide variety of organisms, there remains a lack of knowledge regarding the extent of spatial and temporal gradients and no consensus concerning the definition of monitor species for benthic marine environments. The present study aims at demonstrating the correlation between the presence of t...
Article
Marine litter is one of the most concerning threats for marine wildlife especially regarding plastics and their micro-sized forms, widely known as microplastics. The present study evaluates mesoscale spatial (230 km, Catalan coast) and temporal (2007 vs 2017–2018, Barcelona area) differences on the ingestion of anthropogenic fibers in the deep-sea...
Conference Paper
Parasite communities of two introduced fish species (Lepomis gibbosus and Micropterus salmoides) of Lake Banyoles were analysed in order to describe them and explore seasonal and host-related patterns. The parasite fauna of both species was poor in terms of richness and diversity in comparison with that reported in their native range. When both fis...

La contaminación por microplásticos representa una amenaza potencial para los organismos marinos. Aunque su efecto es aún una incógnita, ya son diversos los estudios que han confirmado la ingestión de estas pequeñas partículas por parte de diversos organismos. En el presente estudio se ha evaluado la presencia de microplásticos en estómagos de gamb...

Microplastic pollution is currently one of the most concerning threats for wildlife. Ingestion of microplastics has been confirmed in a wide variety of marine species. However, their potential effect remains unclear and only a few studies have addressed this issue in natural environments. The present study aims to assess the presence and potential...

Full-text available
Melano-macrophage centres (MMC) have been proposed as potential indicators of stressful conditions in aquatic environments, specifically as potential monitors of fish health. The increased incidence of these centres has been related not only to anthropogenic impacts, but also to other natural processes or stressors such as ageing, food scarcity or...
