Caption: Mediterranean jellyfish (Cotylorhiza tuberculata) and plastic bags. Plastic waste is typically not biodegradable and persists in the environment if not disposed of correctly. Plastic waste can have a severe long-term effect on the marine environment, both as large items that can entangle animals and plants, and as it breaks up into microscopic fragments that can enter the food chain. Photographed in the Mediterranean, off the coast of Spain.
