" SHARKASTICS " are what I've termed plastics that have obvious bite marks (jagged serrations and/or punctures).  It's not just sharks that are biting them, as you can see on the "munchers" page of this site...

As more and more marine debris floods the world's coastlines, we are becoming increasingly aware of this animal-bitten plastic phenomenon.  Sharkastics are commonly found during our marine debris cleanups in Hawai'i and we want to determine their global distribution.  In attempt to gather more information and assess this issue's impacts on marine animal survival we've created this site

Please spread the word about the harmful effects of
plastic pollution!
