Plastic trash accumulation under 5 mm (microplastics) has been playing as water contaminant for a long time period. Microplastics dissemination in the ocean can be threat and trigger for biological effects especially if ingested by the marine biota. The fish Mugil dussumieri is marine biota which is marine biota food resource used as bioindicator to investigate the presence of microplastics in Mangrove Muara Teluknaga, Tangerang, Banten. Microplastic are found both from fish Mugil dussumieri sample and the water sample during the investigation. The type of microplastics most commonly found on M. dussumieri sample and water sample is fiber. The average fiber can be found digestive organ is 164 particles/organs more than respiratory organ 132.5 particles/organ. The average amount of fiber found is 431.5 particles/L and film is 291.5 particles/L.
