Abstract
This report reviews the state of the science regarding the
occurrence and known health effects of marine debris. A broadlevel
synthesis is provided. The presence and accumulation of
ingestible anthropogenic debris in the marine environment,
records of ingestion for a wide range of organisms, as well as
observed and postulated health effects from field and laboratory
studies are discussed. Knowledge gaps in the literature are
identified, and suggestions for how they may be addressed are
provided.
