Marine debris has been shown to be detrimental to marine mammals, including cetaceans (e.g. Simmonds et al. in press). Information on the distribution and amount in the ocean is difficult to obtain. In this short working paper we examine the possibility to collect information on marine debris from dedicated aerial surveys for cetaceans.
