Do you think it would be worthwhile or even profitable to set up and outfit fishing trawlers to collect/recycle this stuff? It would require different rigging aside from just a boom and the regular fishing nets they use, but I think it could be achieved. Not while fishing of course, but if the tourism industry starts to get impacted, would it be something the nearby governments would want to explore?

There are so many start-up companies nowadays who make an effort to contribute something positive to the environment. It's such a shame that the brilliant ideas aren't being implemented on a worldwide scale.

I hope everyone realizes how crucial taking care of the ocean is! Trash in the ocean = water rises = flooding.

The problem is that those ideas are not developed enough for wide use yet. At least I don't know of any that are.

I think we don"t have an opportunity and funds to clear all trash from the ocean...
