  1. >Fishing nets, rope, packing straps, bags and plastic cups were among the items discovered in a compacted mass.

    We might need to clean the ocean a little better than we have been.

    Just a little more effort than the zero effort most of us have done our entire lives.

  2. In all the talk about eliminating single use consumer plastic, we tend to overlook that the #1 culprit is fishing gear. Every time we buy a seafood product, we are contributing to despoiling the ocean.

  3. its a shame that people who litter and waste arent the ones who will live long enough to feel the damage they have done.

  4. I guess whales cant throw up, can they?

  5. This is like a 200lb adult human having half a pound of rope, netting, plastic cups and other trash in the intestines.

  6. NB: “dies with”, not “dies of”.

    I like whales, but let’s not draw the wrong conclusions here.

  7. One mans trash is another mans Taco Bell

  8. That will never happen in Sea World.

  9. What a nice whale picking up our litter for us.
