Collecting Marine Debris Data

 Krishna and Sean sorting trash that was picked up from the marina on Friday.  They are seperating plastic bottles, glass bottles, bottle caps, foam cups, ciggarette butts, food rappers, plastic containers, plastic forks, spoon, knifes and plastic bags.  Sean input all this data in their database; how much trash that was picked up, how many pounds, what sort of trash collected and what can the department do to minimize trash from getting in the ocean like education and outreach to the village, put nets in the stream to capture all the debris, or enforce rules and regulation to families that live next to the stream and people that are littering.
