A good and important post.

By all definitions, I live in the Arctic region, in northern Norway. Whereever I go along the coastline, I see evidence of plastic marine litter fouling our coast, and telling the tale of all the litter that is present in the sea and on the seafloor in this region.

It is said that only 15% of marine litter is returned to the coastline as visible litter along the shore, and judging from that, I am sad thinking of how much trash that must be out there. I have collected pictures of marine litter along my coastline for  some years, unfortunately I cannot see what is on the seafloor.
