Marine Litter

Today, the Scottish parliament is debating the Scottish Marine Bill. It's needed.

94% of fulmars in the North Sea have some plastic in their stomachs, according to a 2004 study reported here by Rob Edwards.

It's reported that an amendment by the Green Party would force Ministers to develop a strategy to tackle Scottish marine litter. And if you don't think it's a problem, just watch the video from May 2007.
