Abstract
    Examination of the digestive tracts of two species of siganids (rabbitfish), collected in 2016 in the Mediterranean coastal waters of Israel, for the presence of microplastics (MP) revealed that 92% of the 88 fish examined had consumed between 1 and >500 MP per fish. A comparison of the gut contents of fish that had been collected from the 1960s to the present time showed that there was a temporal increase in the proportion of fish with MP, from ~10% in 1960–1970; ~80% in the 1990s; 92% in 2016. There was also a temporal change in the proportion of MP types ingested by these fish. Siganids may be valuable bioindicators of MP pollution in the sea.
