19 MARCH, 2019 - M/V So...fea DECK LOG - WHALES AND PLASTIC
Last year we started watching the entrails and contents of fish landed here in town for cleaning and gut inspection . . . we reported here in the log about the plastics found in their gut, and did some entries on micro-plastics content found within the meat by the University, the state of Washington has just passed a plastic bag ban, and Oregon most likely will follow suit . . . one-way food plastics are next (straws, utensils, cups, water bottles and all styrofoam boxes). Also in earlier posts you will find the Pacific gyre trash posts, and the bottled water micro plastic warning.
It was all over the news yesterday in various presentations, but, here is a small Facebook gallery of first-hand images not seen elsewhere.plasticscontent
Same weather, less wind....
