Plastic in Oceans on Rise! Here’s what a new study reveals
About 14 million tonnes of plastic pieces will possibly be at the bottom of the world’s oceans, revealed a new study carried out by Australia’s government science agency CSIRO.
The agency examined the ocean floor’s cores about 300km off the country’s southern coast in the Great Australian Bight, The Guardian reported.
As per the news report, there could be more than 30 times as many plastic pieces at the bottom of the world’s ocean as compared to the plastic floating on the surface.
