    Here's our track - I was going to run towards the corner but the water sucked so I opted to run the edge of the ridge - eventually got tired of the lifeless green water and headed EAST (ENE to be correct) to the 9.

    Nope, I'm old school and prefer to find my own fish. If I wanted Fishdope info it's only a phone call away.

    Guys on my boat know that if they throw trash we’re turning around until they find there trash. As much as fisherman love the ocean it amazes me how easily they trash it.

    U should see when an aircraft carrier tosses the endless garbage bags overboard or a destroyer for that matter

    The long line of sinking trash is especially pretty on a calm sea with sunset in background

    Let’s face the reality - the sea is a dump ...

    No matter how far you are offshore, plastic is not allowed.


    OP. Thanks for the ocean husbandry, and congrats on the dodo. Beats a skunk.

    This was the only thing I was missing on my last Coast Guard inspection.

    "If you have a boat 26’ or longer, you must have a written garbage placard and an oil discharge placard “prominently posted” to remind you and your crew what can be thrown overboard and what can’t. The placards must be permanently attached, be made of durable material, and must be at least 4X9 inches in size.""

    and this

    "If your boat is 40’ or longer, you must also have a written waste management plan, stating how you deal with the collected waste onboard, who handles it, and where it is disposed. This can be as short as one paragraph. We recommend that you keep your plan in your onboard ships papers."

    I've been through the mid Pacific area of floating trash. Appeared to be about 75% floating empty plastic water bottles with the cap screwed on. Also plastic shopping bags and plastic throwaway lighters. Some years prior the most common debris was parts of floating gill nets. But, that is no longer the case.

    POLLUTION
    The Countries Polluting The Oceans The Most
    by Niall McCarthy,
    Aug 7, 2018




    A team of researchers in the United States and Australia led by Jenna Jambeck, an environmental engineer at the University of Georgia, analyzed plastic waste levels in the world's oceans. They found that China and Indonesia are the top sources of plastic bottles, bags and other rubbish clogging up global sea lanes. Together, both nations account for more than a third of plastic detritus in global waters, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal. The original source data can be found here.

    In 2010, 8.8 million metric tons of mismanaged plastic waste came from China with an estimated 3.53 million metric tons of it ending up in the ocean. A total of 3.2 million metric tons of mismanaged plastic waste came from Indonesia and it is estimated that 1.29 million metric tons became plastic marine debris. The United States is also guilty of polluting oceans with plastic, but at a much lower level than China. Annually, 0.11 million metric tons of waterborne plastic garbage comes from the United States.

    Originally this infographic incorrectly labeled the total amount of mismanaged plastic waste as the amount found in the water. It is now been updated to show the total amount of mismanaged plastic waste and the total amount of plastic marine debris.

    Chinese like there giant clams, whale sharks, Mola Mola/Sunfish, any sharkfins, any baby fish and they never bring there garbage back to the dock some people say? And they rape all the Marine Sanctuaries and came close to getting a permit to fish Mexican Waters the same way a few years back.

    US contributes 242,508,489 lbs of plastic pollution to our ocean. We may be at the bottom of the list, but we can do better because we are better.

    China 7,782,317,855 lbs..... dumped in the ocean. That number is hard to comprehend.

    We ALL can do our part...please pick up the trash. I know it's sometimes a PITA when the crap is out of your path but just make it part of your daily plan and in a short time your crew will be spotting the crap along with the paddies.

    I was on a 5 dayer in Aug and observed the cook and crew dump a entire trash can filled with large metal cans from making dinner and a shit load of trash right over the side. It left a such a horrible image of that boat with my bunch of guys. This action which was actually a tipping point of crossing that boat off our boat list, along with the way the order the kite was selected & cap never discussing any plans with his passengers......but dumping a shit load of trash in the deep blue ! Not cool !

    i was on a recent 3 day trip on a LR vessel and the same thing the cooks dumped two large plastic bags full of everything i couldn't believe it, i wonder if this is common practice among the fleet?
