And given that a lot of the debris is fishing nets, then the fishing industry should at least make a start.
You get no opposition from me on this. I just wish someone would take it on and manage to turn a profit, because then there'd be a commercial incentive, not merely a commonsense, practical, ethical, moral incentive.

You might be able to get oil from the plastic, but I doubt it would be a very good grade.
The profit comes from not killing all the fish in the Pacific.
Then we can kill and eat them.
Most likely, the primary product we could make from recovered plastics would be more plastics. Not all of them are bad for our world, but we have to start being careful what we do with the stuff.
