Marine debris is now commonly observer everywhere in oceans. Litter enters the seas from both land-based sources, from ships and other installations at sea, from point and diffuse sources, and can travel long distances before being deposited. While plastics tipically constitute a lower percentage of a discarded waste, there are the most important part of marine litter with sometimes up to 95 per cent of the waste, and have become ubiquitous.
