Plastic bag accompanied by two young horse mackerel (Trachurus trachurus). These fish as young people usually protect themselves from predators by hiding among the stinging tentacles of jellyfish. But in this case the plastic bag does not guarantee them any protection. Portugal - Composite image. Composite image

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.
