Today we had great conditions, so Maks and Joe were able to pace me with the RHIB. We had few long swells but the surface of the ocean was pretty smooth. With those conditions, it was easier to spot any floating trash. Maks and Joe picked some on the way and in few instances asked me to get them if they missed.
They spotted a yellow plastic box flipped upside down. As I turned it over to drain the water out, a school of small fishes left the box. I put the box back in the water and the fish came back in. I repeated this action few times, and each time the fish went back to their shelter. We decided to leave the fish their plastic home.
A few yards away we spotted a cracked plastic bucket. When I drained the water out, again another school of the same type of fish came out of it and they also kept coming back in it each time I put the bucket back in the water. I decided to bring all the fish under the same roof, the yellow plastic box, and collected the bucket.
Everyday I am astonished at the amount of plastic with see floating and the amount I see under the surface.
