Marine debris is defined as any persistent solid material that is manufactured or processed and directly or indirectly, intentionally or unintentionally, disposed of or abandoned into the marine environment or the Great Lakes.
Woods Hole Sea Grant is actively involved in the mitigation of marine debris in our environment through education and awareness of the issue, including beach cleanups and support for derelict fishing gear projects.
