"After we left Japan, it felt as if the ocean itself was dead. We hardly saw any living things. We saw one whale, sort of rolling helplessly on the surface with what looked like a big tumour on its head. It was pretty sickening. I’ve done a lot of miles on the ocean in my life and I’m used to seeing turtles, dolphins, sharks and big flurries of feeding birds. But this time, for 3000 nautical miles there was nothing alive to be seen."

//This past summer, Macfayden sailed from Australia to San Francisco, with a stop in Osaka, Japan. Between over fishing, massive amounts of garbage & debris, and radiation poisoning, he observed that the Pacific ocean is pretty much becoming a dead zone.
