Abstract
    Concerns about the accumulation of partially degraded plastics in the oceans have led observers to conclude that there is no solution to this problem. Yet solutions already exist and are leading to a change and reduction of the type and degradability of commercial detritus. Much of the remaining residues arise from fishing activities.
