A fishing buoy found on the northern coast of East Falklands. One of the largest industries in the Falklands is fishing, however debris from the boats can frequently be found on the coastline which is left behind from the jiggers and trawlers. This large industry boosts the economy of the Falklands, however the the environmental damage can easily be seen. Much of the wildlife is also affected by the debris left behind when the vessels and their crew leave the waters.
