Thon Thamrongnawasawat posted a picture on his Facebook page that showed a ten kilometer stretch of mainly plastic rubbish floating in the sea off Chumporn in the south of Thailand.

The scientist from Kasetsat University in Bangkok said the picture came from a fisherman and was evidence of the untold damage being done to the sea and marine life in the Gulf of Thailand.

He urged the government to get tough with people damaging the sea. But he said that each and every Thai person had to take responsibility for their actions and stop littering.

Thon said that Thais were number 5 in the list of worst polluters on earth though Manager did not report how he came up with that statistic.
