This sounds ingenious! The great bubble barrier, keeping plastic out of the ocean:

@fribbledom This won't stop the pollution by cheap plastic one-off fishing nets, but still looks like a good idea to stop the other kinds of garbage from entering the ocean.

@fribbledom Great idea. This could be part of a solution for a worldwide disaster in progress, plastic waste. The best is of course to not use plastic for packaging but that could take many years to achieve.

That certainly beats other physical barriers. Especially if it's not a problem for fish (though I suspect the smaller the fish the more of an obstacle it becomes)
But with an effectiveness of 80-something percent it's certainly a big help in reducing the impact, but not solving the issue by any means.
