Microplastics (MPs) are the predominant form of marine plastic debris, and small enough to be ingested by marine organisms. Fish inhabiting coastal environments are susceptible to the ingestion of MPs. Presented data include the information of MPs level in the digestive tracts of 19 fish species which were caught from the Yellow Sea (31°28'52.380"∼38°49'15.540″ N, 120°42'36.840"∼124°49'06.180″E). For discussion and interpretation of the presented data, refer to the research article entitled"Characteristics and retention of microplastics in the digestive tracts of fish from the Yellow Sea"[1].
