High Tide Aquatics

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch it will make every reefer sick!

This was just brought to my attention the other day at work. The way the oceans currents work around the world every piece of plastic that falls into the ocean ends up here. There is a section in the pacific that all the currents converge and the plastic get contained. Imagine an area the size of Texas and is completely covered in plastic garbage. The garbage in that section of the ocean out weights surface zooplankton 6:1. It is killing marine life constantly. I saw a picture of a dead whale that had plastic stuck between it's baleen which meant it starved to death because it couldn't eat any longer. This is crazy you need to google The Great Pacific Garbage Patch it will make every reefer sick!
