Plastic bags and a lot of other plastic garbage drift through oceans driven by wind and ocean currents. And sometimes they pile up in dense dumps in the ocean gyros. Fish as many other marine animals, end up ingesting these plastic objects that cause obstructions of the digestive tract and a terrible death after prolonged suffering.
