local.seafdecaqd.extractEven though few people live in the Artic, some seas in the region are heavily polluted with plastic because of an Atlantic ocean current which dumps debris there, researchers said Wednesday. Scientists aboard the globe traveling French schooner, Tara, in 2013 were surprised to find the seas east of Greenland and north of Scandinavia are a dead-end for plastics, said the report in the journal Science Advances. The debris in the area was estimated to measure hundreds of tons, and included fishing lines, plastic films, fragments and granules.en
