Excellent idea. How do they stop sea creatures being sucked in with the garbage?

Sea creatures generally don't swim near the surface of the sea but it's pretty easy to empty so they could fish ( no pun intended ) out.

That's a good idea and reminds me of a pond skimmer.

Skimmers of that size would be useful floating around harbours but I wonder if they could make huge ones to clean the oceans?
