Plastic, its forever and there's a lot of it. Abandoned fishing nets are a problem too. Marine animals get trapped in them and die needlessly. If people would dispose of their waste properly and use a little common sense our Oceans would be a lot better place for everyone.

Agree with George 1224. Plastic is huge issue. See movie Plastic Ocean. Fishing nets, illegal fishing, Taiji capture and killing of dolphins. Norway and Japan whale hunting in the name of tradition and science is BS.
