Increased Plastics in the Ocean

Increased plastics in the Ocean, could this effect Maryland water ways?

A significant and comprehensive analysis, published by Science Magazine, has highlighted that some 8 million tonnes of plastic waste enters the World's Oceans each year. According to the report by the New York Times, published on 12 Feb 2015, "Cleaning up the plastic once it is in the oceans is impractical; only a portion of it floats, while most disappears, and presumably what does not wash ashore settles to the bottom. Any collection system fine enough to capture the smaller particles would also pick up enormous amounts of marine life. So the best option... is to improve waste management ashore."
