The plastic and floating litter community originates from the Pacific Rim, including countries in Asia, North America and South America. These are two enormous masses of constantly growing garbage. It is estimated that approximately 100 million tons of plastic is produced each year [globally], and about 10% of this plastic pollutes the oceans. It is assumed that there are about 46,000 pieces of plastic per square mile of the ocean.
Today, trained naval pirates, armed with conventional weapons, use special equipment and small, powerful motor boats to attack and land on ships, taking advantage of the small number of crews on modern cargo and transport ships. The earliest documented examples of piracy were in the 14th century BC when a group of ocean raiders, the Sea Peoples, attacked the ships of the Aegean and Mediterranean civilizations.
