According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Marine Debris Program, the term “Marine Debris” is defined as: “any persistent solid material that is manufactured or processed and directly or indirectly, intentionally or unintentionally, disposed of or abandoned into the marine environment or the Great Lakes.”

Marine debris is human created waste that has deliberately or accidentally become afloat in a lake, sea, ocean, or waterway. Oceanic debris tends to accumulate at the centre of gyres and on coastlines. With the increased use of plastic, human influence on marine debris has become an issue as many types of plastics do not biodegrade. They pose serious threats to fish, seabirds, and marine mammals.
