Underwater Fact 44

updates

Ocean gyres create large areas of calm water.  Debris drifts into these areas and, because of lack of movement, stays there for years.

One such area can be found in the North Pacific Ocean, where plastic and other trash have collected in a massive garbage patch twice the size of the U.S. state of Texas.
