This Special Issue entitled “marine pollutants” aims to provide an up-to-date and comprehensive view of the hazardous substances, materials and processes that can pose a risk to marine ecosystems and negatively affect the health and the economy of the communities living the coastal areas (i.e., fishing and tourism industry). All the types of marine pollution will be considered: from planetary scale issues such as like oceans acidification, warming and eutrophication to local scale impact such as like oil spills, chemical and biological contamination, underwater noise. Papers dealing with plastic and microplastic in the marine environment are also welcomed. The covered topics will span all the aspect of marine pollution: occurrence, fate and bio-ecological effects of the marine pollutants; impacts on fishing and aquaculture, analytical methods and monitoring techniques; mitigation and remediation strategies; green technologies and blue economy, law and policies. The target audience includes the whole science community, industry, conservation groups, concerned citizens and policy makers devoted to implement effective pollution control strategies. We would like to encourage you to submit to this Special Issue your original research papers, short communication of preliminary results, review articles or commentaries to stimulate the discussion.
