    If all the fish die, which is looking like it, we lose.

    That would be a shame. I quite like looking at fish!

    I like looking at them and I sometimes like eating them too.

    I’m involved with the Ghost Fishing project which has similar objectives, get the shit out of the sea.

    Such a monstrous task though. Maybe tipping point been reached due to the longevity of the plastic breakdown time. And I can imagine it being easy to clog up a marine animals stomach with a couple of plastic bags.

    Trouble is that "most people" don't know and "most people" consider it SEP (Someone Else's Problem -- why don't "they" do something about it) and "most people" don't give a shit, they care more about their tiny life bubbles.
