Plastics in our Ocean Video

Posted on TVO.org
 

About the video:

Water Brothers Tyler and Alex tell about their journey on a 5 Gyres Research Expedition into the North Pacific Gyre for season II of their documentary series. The remote area is commonly known as the horse latitudes and the onboard team gathered samples there over several days to test for the level of concentration of plastic debris in the ocean accumulation zone. The Royal Ontario Museum's Dave Ireland is also interviewed and explains the impact of the ocean plastic problem on the marine life food chain and how our ingesting of sea food-infused microscopic plastics, can lead to serious health effects in humans.
