The 5 Gyres team explored the Sargasso Sea, which is smack in the middle of the North Atlantic Gyre. We found plastic in every research trawl. We found floating mats of sargassum full of plastic, and one bucket. In the bucket we found a trigger fish, too big to get out, imprisoned in plastic.
While we're on the subject of gyres and floating plastic, you might want to check out Fake Plastic Fish, where blogger Beth Terry makes a strong case this week for why we can't clean up the Pacific gyre.
That's it for this #WaterWednesday. What's on your mind regarding water this week?
We make peace in a million small ways every day.
