Abstract
Entanglement of marine species in marine debris is a global
problem affecting at least 200 species. Based on the literature
reviewed in the United States alone, at least 115 species of
marine mammals, sea turtles, sea birds, fish, and invertebrates are
affected. This review of the literature focused primarily on marine
debris entanglement specific to the U.S., incorporating over 170
reports dating as far back as 1928.
