Pacific Ocean - Garbage Patch

PACIFIC OCEAN.  The last 30 years - The Great Pacific garbage patch, is a collection of marine debris in the central North Pacific Ocean located roughly between 135°W to 155°W and 35°N and 42°N. It is composed of large debris and microscopic particles of plastics.

The Great Pacific garbage patch was predicted in a 1988 paper published by theNational Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of the United States.
