The project aims to investigate why and how plastic impacts the marine environment, particularly in the deep waters of the mesopelagic layer. This study will evaluate the plastics' acoustic characteristics, compare them to the acoustic features of the natural prey of deep-diving predators, and propose mitigation measures in terms of plastic composition and structure. Ultimately, the project will contribute to mitigating marine pollution and its impacts on living aquatic organisms and communities.
