The theories discussed in Section Three come to light in people’s struggles to implement controls over the sources, pathways, and deposition of marine debris. The following account illustrates some of the primary challenges facing members of the maritime community as they decide how to address their contributions to the marine debris problem. The players are a fishing industry association (an information provider attempting to foster changes in behavior), the captain and crew of a commercial fishing vessel (information receivers implementing changes in behavior), and a fish processor operating an unloading dock.
