Marine plastic waste causes the death of 15million marine organisms every year
it is reported that the research of Ms. Laurence Morris, an academician of the French Academy of development research, shows that about 15million marine organisms die every year due to plastic waste. 1. Stop the experiment at the upper and lower limit positions, and it has been deteriorating in recent years
marine pollution will bring great harm to marine organisms. At an Environmental Forum held in Quito, Ecuador, this week, Ms. Laurence Morris said: "according to statistics, 30% of fish in the North Atlantic will eat a lot of plastic waste during their life cycle." There are a wide range of marine organisms affected by marine pollution, such as fish, whales, turtles, etc., and plastic waste is fatal to them. Ms. Lawrence Morris said with great regret: "recently, we found the remains of a chick. After autopsy, it was found that its stomach was full of plastic, because the adult bird had fed it a lot of plastic garbage."
the pollution area of plastic particles increases by 80000 square kilometers every year on average.
when we mention marine pollution, we will come up with a picture of plastic bottles and cans floating on the ocean, but this is only the "tip of the iceberg". There are still a large number of plastic particles in the sea water, which are difficult to be found by the naked eye. Compared with the larger volume of plastic waste, plastic debris in the form of particles is more harmful to marine organisms. These tiny plastic particles with a diameter of no more than 5 mm sometimes float to the sea surface, or sink to the sea bottom, or are washed to the coast. Due to their small size, these plastic wastes are easily absorbed by marine organisms and will accumulate in the ends of animal tissues. Plastic particles are most concentrated in the North Pacific, South Pacific, North Atlantic, South Atlantic and central Indian Ocean, which are mainly caused by human activities and monsoon currents
global plastic micro China's plastic extruder industry is moving towards a healthy and sustainable development. The area with the most particles is mainly located in the sea area between California and Hawaii. At present, its polluted area has reached 35000 square kilometers, equivalent to one seventh of the land area of France. The polluted area of these plastic particles is growing at a rate of 80000 square kilometers per year
the French Development Institute is not the first institution to study marine plastic particle pollution. As early as 2011, the world whale and Dolphin Conservation Association has begun to condemn this type of marine pollution. In 2012, there was such a report in Le Figaro: plastic particles contain toxic components, which will cause serious friction between moving parts when entering the organism, resulting in energy loss and reduced fuel efficiency. Through the food chain, these plastic particles may enter the human body in various ways
