Description Microplastics (MPs) have been found in various marine compartments especially in fish, and there is limited information regarding the accumulation of MPs in fish organs. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the presence of microplastics in economically important fish organs (Hemiramphus far, Siganus virgatus, and Lethrinus lentjan) at Barranglompo Island Waters, Makassar, and also to identify the characteristics of microplastics including color, shape, and size. Each organ was extracted using KOH 20% and the MPs characteristics were observed visually using a stereomicroscope. The result showed that MPs were found in gills, gastrointestinal tract, and flesh of three fish species. The detection rate of MPs in H. far, S. virgatus, and L. lentjan was 100%, 100%, and 82%, respectively. The most common MP color was blue, the shape was predominantly line, and the most abundant size range was 1–5 mm. Further studies are needed to investigate the accumulation of MPs in fish organs experimentally in the laboratory.
Mikroplastik (MP) telah ditemukan di berbagai lingkungan laut khususnya pada ikan, dan informasi terkait akumulasi mikroplastik pada organ-organ ikan masih sangat terbatas. Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk membuktikan keberadaan mikroplastik pada organ insang, saluran pencernaan, dan daging ikan ekonomis penting (Hemiramphus far, Siganus virgatus, dan Lethrinus lentjan) di perairan Pulau Barranglompo, Makassar, serta mengidentifikasi karakteristik mikroplastik meliputi warna, bentuk, dan ukuran. Setiap organ diekstraksi menggunakan KOH 20% dan pengamatan karakteristik MP dilakukan secara visual menggunakan mikroskop stereo. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa mikroplastik ditemukan di insang, saluran pencernaan, dan daging dari ketiga spesies ikan. Tingkat deteksi mikroplastik pada masing-masing H. far, S. virgatus, dan L. lentjan adalah 100%, 100%, dan 82%. Karakteristik warna mikroplastik didominasi oleh biru, bentuk mikroplastik didominasi oleh line, dan kisaran ukuran mikroplastik didominasi 1–5 mm. Penelitian lebih lanjut perlu dilakukan untuk melihat akumulasi mikroplastik pada setiap organ secara eksperimental di laboratorium.
