A Mini-Review: Marine Debris in Indonesian Waters
Asian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Research, Volume 13, Issue 2,
Indonesia is a country that has very wide sea waters and has abundant resources. The quality of the waters must be maintained, especially from marine debris (MD) contaminants. This article aims to explain the classification, movement, and impact of marine debris on the aquatic environment. From various studies, it was found that MD in Indonesian waters is grouped into macro and micro sizes. The movement of MD in waters is influenced by tides, currents, and wind speed. MD greatly impacts the ecosystem in aquatic habitats especially mangroves. The purpose of this article is to review of marine debris in Indonesian waters.
