Quantity of plastic in major marine areas 2019

It is estimated that almost two trillion pieces of plastic are in the North Pacific Ocean. This is the largest quantity of plastic compared to other major marine areas. Much of this is made up of microplastics.

Microplastics can come from a variety of sources, such as car tires, city dust and synthetic textiles. These make their way into water sources around the world, causing harm to marine life.
