You Will Be Surprised To See What Is Dumped In the Pacific Ocean (11 pics)

Posted by Raya in Random » Weird   28 Jun 2013   / 10997 views

In a recent study by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute it was found that areas in the deep sea are actually filled with accumulated rubbish. The research covered waters as deep as 13,123 ft (4000 m) and you will be shocked at the things they found littered there!
 

This used tyre was found 2850 ft (868 m) below the surface.

A plastic bag wrapped around a coral at 7000 ft (2115 m).

An old shoe found at 1548 ft (472 m).

In total, they recorded 1150 objects at dive sites around Monterey Bay in particular. The largest portion of this rubbish (32%) was made out of plastic, which is particularly harmful to marine life while the largest single piece they found was a shipping container that fell from a ship in 2004.

They can find a goddamn shoe in 1500+ feet of water but no one seems to be able to find Jimmy Hoffa...

@PCSinWV,
providing habitat in your mind for you to keep doing the same stupid shit that we all keep doing until the food chains completely break down and we get mad and blame politicians or big corporations or whoever because the opportunity is long gone to change our own behavior to prevent the problem happening in the first place..

Managed to read all the way thru the middle part, but yep, PCSinWV is a piece of shit, if that's what you meant.

@Ree

Nor could they find Snowden.
Deal with it!
