Report Details

On this beach walk, I noted a great deal more of plastic debris towards the north end of the beach.  The pieces were larger than previously noted in other mile reports I have documented.  This was the fewest amount of people I've documented on this beach, especially given the good weather and lower tide.  New rock formations continue to be uncovered with the higher tides.  There were also lots of pieces of jellyfish in the debris line.  

Conditions

Temperature: 50 F. Wind Velocity: Calm/Light. Wind Direction: N. Tide Level: 1.4 feet.

Human Activities

Number of people: 5. Walking or running: 3.

Vehicles

Cars/trucks parking: 3. RVs/Buses parking: 1.

Dead Fish or Invertebrates

Unusual concentration. May be the time of year but there were more pieces of jelly fish along the debris line.

Driftline Content

Shells, Marine debris (plastic, styrofoam, etc. washing in from the sea). Much more plastic debris noted on the north end of the beach. Lots of pieces of jellyfish in debris line as well.
