Captain Charles Moore founded the Algalita Marine Research Foundation In 1994. In 1995 he launched his aluminum hulled research vessel, Alguita, in Hobart, Tasmania. Since then he has logged over 100,000 miles of research voyages aboard. His 1999 study shocked the scientific world when it found six times more plastic fragments by weight in the surface waters of the central Pacific than the associated zooplankton. His second paper found that plastic outweighs zooplankton by a factor of 2.5 in the surface waters of Southern California.Those papers on oceanic plastic particulate pollution contributed to his reputation as a world-renowned investigator in this field. His study of discharges by plastic processors resulted in the passage of a “Nurdle Bill” to prohibit the discharge of pre-production plastic pellets in the state of California. His work has been featured on Good Morning America, Late Night with David Letterman, Nightline, The Colbert Report, and the National Geographic special Strange Days on Planet Earth.
