Waste Shark

From plastic waste to pollution, some of the biggest threats facing the world’s oceans are both avoidable and fixable. With the plight facing marine life, and the environment in general, because of the strain being put on the seas many savvy scientists and entrepreneurs are creating ever more inventive gadgets to help save the oceans. Here are some of our favourites.

Waste Shark

Designed by Richard Hardiman of RanMarine and already in use in the Port of Rotterdam, Waste Shark is a small robotic device that 'swims' close to the shore catching rubbish before it can make its way out to sea. Available in both Slim and Fatboy versions, each device has a mouth that extends a foot below the water and can catch up to 1,100 pounds of waste before returning to land to be emptied. The Port of Rotterdam Authority's Port Waste Catch programme is trialling the use of four Waste Sharks until the end of 2016 with the hopes of them becoming an ocean cleaning standard in harbours and marinas across the globe.
