By 2020, the amount of waste in the oceans will reach 1.5 trillion tonnes.
The number of fish caught annually in China alone will increase from 5 million in 2012 to 11 million in 2020.
If we’re going to tackle this problem, it’s time to look at robotics.

Future of life: What we know and don’t know About the oceans The oceans are the second largest water body after the Earth.
They have been growing at an average rate of 1.2% a year for the past 50 years.
The oceans contain around 100 billion tons of sediment, the stuff that floats on the surface of the ocean.
When they are at their most productive, the oceans are full of plankton that are responsible for the production of marine life and plants.
These are the kind of organisms that we need to feed our oceans with food and to grow the food that we eat.
The world’s oceans are also rich in fish.
The fish population is growing at a rate of 5% a season and they are expected to double by the end of this century.
They are also contributing to a steady decline in the total amount of carbon in the atmosphere, the biggest single driver of climate change.
But, the most important species that the oceans eat are the plankton.
In order to have a healthy ecosystem, these organisms need to be around.
That’s why researchers at the US Geological Survey are studying the development of robots that can harvest plankton from the oceans.
We’re already using robotic harvesting methods, for example, to harvest fish caught at the mouth of the Mississippi River.
But the next step is to develop a robotic system that can extract the nutrients from the planktons, break down the plant matter and use it as fuel to make products like shampoo.
Robots can be used to harvest planktons from the ocean The USGS is currently developing a robotic method to harvest algae from the water.
These organisms are very nutritious, but they are a toughy species that requires a lot of work.
They need to grow quickly, which is why they are caught at high tide.
The process involves placing a plastic bag over the top of the algae, which releases the algae into the water, where they live until they are washed up.
Once washed up, the plastic bag is removed and placed back in the water to be processed by robots.
For most of the year, these algae are gathered from the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, where many species of fish are caught.
But over the past few years, a lot more algae have been found in the Chesapeake Bay, which has a different ecosystem and uses a different method.
To harvest these algae, the robot uses a special kind of machine called a biofuel burner.
These machines take a lot less water and a lot faster than other methods.
So, these machines are also being developed for the Gulf.
We are going to use them to harvest some of the largest and most important plankton species, including the huge, oily creatures that are the ones that we use to make shampoo.
This method can be easily modified to be able to harvest the plankts from any ocean, which will make it possible to extract the important nutrients that are needed to sustain the ecosystem.
Researchers are also working on a robot that can collect algae from deep within the ocean, a process that requires large volumes of water.
This is known as deep ocean harvesting.
This process is known for extracting a lot o the water needed for deep ocean research.
It is now being explored as a possible solution to the problem of planktastic oceanic fish.
Deep ocean harvesting is currently only being used in one place in the world, off the coast of Spain.
But researchers at Texas A&M University are developing a robot to harvest large amounts of algae from a depth of about 4,500 metres.
This will be the first of its kind in the Pacific Ocean, where the ocean is still warming due to climate change, and is known to have large quantities of algae.
This deep ocean machine will be able produce around 30 tonnes of algae per day.
