    In a survey monitoring water quality based on various criteria, the West and Southeast Coasts were found to have overall fair conditions, whereas the Northeast Coast was found to have poor conditions. You can look at the figure in the link below.

    To add to the previous answer, there is an island of plastic debris floating in the Pacific ocean between Japan and Hawaii twice the size of Texas. It collects there because of the route of ocean currents and is only growing. This has a very harmful effect on all wildlife around it, as seen in this heartbreaking picture of the remains of a baby albatross. The bird died after it was fed plastic by its parents.
