Great Pacific Garbage Patch becomes a giant ‘floating plastic habitat’

The coastal flora and fauna that are brought to sea on plastic debris don’t just exist over an area of the ocean known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. They’re building communities and growing, according to research recently published in Nature Communications.
