Abstract

Marine debris as a “new” pollution problem was first identified in the United States in the 1980s during public education and awareness campaigns that addressed the condition of coastal beaches (Wallace 1985; Pruter 1987a; O’Hara 1990). Because coastal beaches collect debris from all sources, most studies evaluating marine debris have focused on beaches (O’Hara 1990; Ribic 1991; Cole et al. 1995).
