Marine Debris Survey at the Pacific Northwest

 
July 2014 Research Overview
 

On July 17, 2014, we went to Ocean Shores (0.5 mile south of the Elk Creek River) for another marine debris research.

The arrival situation will give us a view of the overall situation of Asian originated marine debris traveling along the Kuroshio (Black Current) and some of them are reaching the beaches of the Pacific Northwest. With a total of 28 Asian marine debris found, it was the most we have found so far. We also found the most debris originating from Japan than we have in the past. Among those, was a propane tank, which you can view below. Due to its potential hazard on the shore, we called the Washington State Department of Ecology to retrieve the tank.
