Marine pollution has been common in Indonesian waters, including one of the hot issues that just happened is the discovery of plastic waste in the bodies of dead whales stranded in Wakatobi, Sulawesi. Marine pollution, in this case, garbage, is more often due to human behavior in littering. It also includes the possibility of fishing behavior. Fishermen in their work, it often takes days to go to sea, so they bring supplies, which are not uncommon to supply food into garbage in the open ocean. And also garbage or other pollution caused by fishermen. In maritime science, there are many conventions that regulate environmental concerns when humans are in the waters. These conventions are the basis for providing education to fishermen regarding environmental concerns.
