Abstract:

Marine debris, such as derelict fishing gear, bottles, plastics, and Styrofoam, remain in the sea almost in perpetuity and harm the marine environment. Some marine debris is transboundary, making it a controversial issue on an international scale. With industrialization, population growth, and dense activity in coastal areas, large quantities of marine debris are generated, harming the marine environment and causing a large number of maritime accidents in Korea. Most of the coastal countries in the world are in a similar situation. The challenges to managing marine debris in Korea are shared with the international marine community.
