Organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are highly stable and bioaccumulative, and microplastics (MPs; plastics <5 mm) are ubiquitous in the marine environment. In this study we report the levels of a selection of pollutants in liver and muscle of juvenile gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata) exposed to virgin and weathered MP enriched diets during three months and followed by one month of MP depuration. In general, a major concentration of pollutants in liver was observed. According to OCPs, total DDTs was two or three times higher in liver. Levels in muscle suffer higher variability between treatments and sampling periods. The MP index was negatively correlated to HCB and positively to p,p′DDT in liver. Levels of pollutants are correlated to biological parameters such as total size and total weight. Our results suggest that the bioaccumulation is subjected to the molecular structure of the pollutants and that MPs are correlated with the detoxification system.
