Research on plastic pollution of aquatic ecosystems is currently expanding. However, the impact of plastic on biodiversity is still poorly understood. Studies for the presence of micro- and macroplastics in water bodies of Kazakhstan have not been conducted before. As a result of research research, var types of microplastics and other micro and macro artifacts were found on the coast and coast of the Caspian Sea. In this regard, further research is needed to qualitatively and quantitatively assess the volume of plastic pollution and to clarify their
impact on living organisms and the ecosystem of the sea.
