    Abstract

    Marine litter or the non-degradable wastes generated due to anthropogenic activities, has been recognized as one of the major threats to coastal marine ecosystem in the 21st century. These originate mainly from land and enter the aquatic ecosystem through land runoff and also when they are discarded by human beings directly into the coastal waters.
