Trash on the seabed

An international team has analyzed 600 underwater samples taken from the Atlantic, Arctic and Mediterranean oceans, and in all of them they have found large amounts of garbage. But the problem is especially serious in the Mare Nostrum because in some places there was only garbage on the seabed.

Almost half of the underwater debris is plastic objects and another 34% are sunken fishing gear, but these scientists have also found, at the bottom of the sea, ceramic sinks, military aircraft equipment and many metal objects and clothing.
