Microplastic contamination in marine environment and in various types of seafood has raised global concern on the human health impact. The possibility of microplastic ingested by human is very likely to occur via consumption of seafood that is eaten whole, such as shellfish. However, up to now, the risks of microplastic on human health are still under investigation. In order to determine the risk of microplastic on human health, study on microplastic exposure is urgently needed to infer the intake of microplastics via seafood consumption. This kind of study is very relevant to be conducted in coastal areas, where the inhabitants consume seafood frequently as their protein sources. The aims of this study are to assess shellfish consumption of Semarang inhabitants and to determine their microplastic intake via shellfish (cockles, mussels, clams, and oysters) consumption. The dietary study is done using food frequency questionnaires (FFQ) and 24 hour-recall diet methods. Multistage random sampling method is used to determine the respondents. The first stage is to randomly select 5 out of 16 districts in Semarang city. The second stage is to select 2 villages randomly from each selected district, and followed by the last stage that randomly choose two neighborhoods from each village. In total there are 500 respondents invited to participate in this study. The respondents are classified based on four age groups, i.e. children (0-9 years), adolescent (10-19 years), adults (20-59 years), and elderly people (60->75 years). The daily intake (g/day/person) of shellfish of Semarang inhabitants will be obtained from FFQ and recall diet. The concentrations of microplastics were obtained from a microscopic technique following a series of destruction using KOH and filtration. To estimate the microplastic intake (g/day/person), the daily intake of shellfish is multiplied by the average concentration of microplastics found in shellfish (cockles and mussels) collected from Semarang.
