    The ever-growing problem of marine debris begins on land, where streams and rivers carry debris to the coast. Ocean currents then transport debris to remote areas, where it may take centuries to break down (Goldberg, ).Awareness of the marine debris problem has increased because of recent reports on the Eastern Pacific Garbage Patch (EPGP). The book Ecotoxicology focuses on effect of toxic substances on ecosystem and their components. the marine environment, understanding metal uptake and excretion in invertebrates is important as these organisms may be exposed to very high levels of metals.
