Since 1997, when the ‘Great Pacific Garbage Patch’ was discovered, it is repeatedly being discussed as which country or region is mainly responsible for it. Many coastal regions have been under scanner for contributing to the plastic pollution found in the oceans.

The plastic pollution is causing destruction of habitat and killing fish, birds and other marine animals. Now, a new mathematical model has been developed that may help know the main culprits. Researchers from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney, Australia, unveiled that at least five...
