Whales starving to death on a full stomach because they have eaten indigestible plastic.
Plastics and lost fishing Gear are a danger to Wildlife : Seabirds often get caught in lost fishing nets , Seals, porpoises and numerous fish species can also become victims of plastic waste.
1,300 plastic objects on average per square kilometer - this is the bottom of the North Sea.
Tons of fishing nets have been recovered in the North Sea -ghostnest killing millions of sea animals.
In addition to tourism, shipping and fishing are the main causes of garbage pollution in the North Sea.
Many Ship captains simply throw their plastic waste into the sea instead of disposing of it in the port. The effects of the litter are serious, the penalties ridiculous. There would be a simple solution.
Waste disposal in many ports is chargeable.
In fact, the problem is dramatic. More and more garbage gets into the sea and since it is mostly made of plastic, it disintegrates over time into microscopic parts.
International Cooperation is necessary since plastic waste is not limited to national Borders.
