Hong Kong’s Blue Ocean Club Conducted Six Dive Against Debris Surveys In 2018


Hong Kong’s Blue Ocean Club was quite active last year, conducting six Project AWARE Dive Against Debris surveys at their local dive sites.

During those surveys, volunteers removed a total of 439 kilos/968 lbs and 2,598 Items from their local dive sites, with the data they collected being added to Project AWARE’s global trash database.

According to that database, the most common items found off the Greater China coast are pieces of plastic, food wrappers and beverage bottles.

Project AWARE has set a goal of collecting another million pieces of trash from the world’s oceans by 2020.
