Researchers are concerned about the new marine structure

Researchers are concerned about the new marine structure

It is not new that the world’s population is being alerted to the dangers of flooding the entire world trash in the ocean. What science did not expect, however, was the creation of a new ecosystem from such diligent stewardship. With this residue, new species invade a new area, the open sea, causing competition from the native organisms in this new location.

Garbage piling up in the Pacific

Since this is the largest accumulation strip of rubbish in the Pacific Ocean, the place has earned the sad name “Great Garbage Island of the Pacific”, identified by five large streams that carry rubbish to the center of this place and leave there.

One of the big problems is that with such a large load moved, many attackers are taking advantage of this new location.

This “big island” appears as a vast patch, the main composition of which is plastic particles that are not noticed by satellites.

However, it became very noticeable to the navigators of the area, due to its large concentration of rubbish.

Recently, a study was conducted that revealed an interesting development. showed that many species of invertebrate organisms, most common in coastal regions, manage to sustain themselves, transport themselves and reproduce in those invertebrates drifting on the high seas.

environmental imbalance

Plastic, unlike organic materials, takes about 450 years to decompose. The current finding is that massive pollution in the seas is building new ecosystems.

These ecosystems, in turn, harbor new species and these normally would not survive in that environment under other conditions.

The creation of this new ecosystem demonstrates the other serious effects of pollution of the seas, showing how this act is affecting native fauna in ways previously unknown to science, with the potential for profound changes in the oceans.

It is still not possible to measure the effects of these changes, but they are no longer positive, as there is already internal and external competition for these new species, which could cause an ecological imbalance.
