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.

This review discusses the need for standardized research methodologies within freshwater microplastic research. Standardized techniques will improve the accuracy of microplastic abundance records within freshwater environments, supporting progress towards SDG 14 (life below water) and 12 (responsible consumption and production).
Supporting progress towards SDG's 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 14 (life below water), this review discusses microplastic and nanoplastic occurrence in freshwater ecosystems and explores current analytical methods used to characterise them.

Directly supporting SDGs 3 (good health and wellbeing), 12 (responsible consumption and production), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land), this piece outlines current research on the accumulation of microplastics and their associated contaminants in a variety of organisms including humans.
This critical review explores current knowledge surrounding interactions between microplastics and persistent organic pollutants present within the marine environment. Enhanced understanding of microplastic's environmental impact supports SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 14 (life below water).
This critical review aims to enhance the effectiveness and reliability of microplastic identification methods used within environmental research. This discussion advances SDG 9.5 (enhance scientific research) along with multiple SDGs in which microplastics impact, including SDGs 12 (responsible consumption and production), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land).
