Was dropped into the sea every day. And that number is. Most plastic. 89%. or plastic approximately 46,000. pieces / square mile. Which is. 3. times the amount of fish caught but still.
Experts in marine biology and chemistry. The study on contamination of coastal areas. Found a small plastic contamination is common in both the marine and coastal areas. There are also large pieces of foam plastic garbage and fishing gear is a lot of the smaller animals like sea barnacles and marine worms. Whales and dolphins to the rare dugong, sea turtles are injured or disabled or because it was a waste Panlm. Or eat any junk into.
Mark your incomparable support Kosol of scholars specialized in fishing. Head of rare animals. Institute of Marine Resources. Coastal and mangrove forests. Department of Marine and Coastal.

Ways to solve the garbage problem is to focus on the "left" rather than "store", ie a system of waste management from the land. This will result in less waste into the sea. However, any system will be useless. Without the cooperation of all of us.
