plastic waste in deepest ocean

deep sea 100% polluted

研究人員在全球六個最深的海溝,採集不同動物樣本,當中100%的樣本都含有微膠粒。這些塑膠垃圾分解自不同物料,如衣物纖維、尼龍、包裝袋及膠樽等。塑膠垃圾除了嚴重影響淺水區域及海面上的生物,連超過6公里深的深海亦受到污染。

Researchers collected marine creatures samples from six of the deepest ocean trenches, and found that 100% of the samples contained microparticles. These microparticles are substances from different materials like clothes, nylon, packaging and plastic containers. Plastic debris not only affecting creatures in shallower water or above sea level, but also polluting area over 6km deep under water.
