The first operational deployment will be off the coast of Japan and South Korea. Floating debris such as plastic will be caught in the system,
virtually posing no threat to aquatic life and a beginning point for clean up of our world's oceans.
"The currents pull the sea life under the floatation devices but the lighter-than-water plastics float into the barriers. What would have taken
humanity 70,000 years to clean with boats and nets can be cleaned, instead, in decades."
