Greenpeace says Hong Kong’s seafood industry is at risk due to the amount of plastic found in fish.

The group said 60 percent of grey mullet analyzed had large amounts of plastic in their gut.

Grey mullet is one of Hong Kong’s most popular fish. Other species also have problems.

The group said that disposable items such as water bottles are breaking down into tiny fragments.

The so-called "microplastic" then enters into the city’s waters and into seafood.

''These toxins have proven to potentially cause cancer to us and particularly to pregnant women and growing child.”

Hong Kong’s beaches are polluted with nearly 2.5 times more microplastic than those in the U.S.

The group wants the government to crack down on the use of plastic products.
