Plastic Sushi

Exactly a year ago, I wrote an article for the Santa Monica Mirror about keeping plastic out of our sushi.

Little did I know then that we would document three new fish species this year that are ingesting plastic. This summer, sailing across the Pacific JUNK, Marcus caught a rainbow runner with 17 plastic fragments in its belly. Plastic is slowly but surely becoming an unwanted part of our food chain.

Hungry as they were after 2 months at sea, they tossed this one.....

Here is the video account from JUNK.
