Resumen

This study reports the first record of microplastics in the stomach contents of the king crab Lithodes santolla. Samples were collected in Nassau Bay during September 2017. Plastics ingested belonged to small microplastics between 3.0 and more than 20 mm long having mainly blue color. Their frequency of occurrence in stomachs was 27%. The microplastic ingestion by L. santolla may present not only a risk for the species self, also for other trophic levels in the food web.
