Record #94483:

Accumulation of stranded plastic objects and other artefacts at Inaccessible Island, central South Atlantic Ocean / P.G. Ryan, B.P. Watkins.

Title: Accumulation of stranded plastic objects and other artefacts at Inaccessible Island, central South Atlantic Ocean / P.G. Ryan, B.P. Watkins.
Author(s): Ryan, P. G.
Watkins, B. P.

In: South African Journal of Antarctic Research. (1988.), Vol. 18(1) (1988)
Abstract: Reports findings of survey first made in 1984 and then repeated in 1987. Plastic objects >10 mm diameter discovered in three hour period along a 900 m boulder beach counted, categorized and identified by country of origin. Artefacts attributable to local fishery little increased in abundance, whereas those derived from distant sources had increased by at least 120%.
