Focussing on SDG's 3 (good health and well-being), 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 14 (life below water), this review piece identifies limitations in current methodologies and practices used to study microplastics in seafood. Future studies may be improved by harmonising research methods, including sampling, isolation, quantification, polymer identification, and contamination management procedures.
