The Science Behind the Seabin: The Ocean’s First Trash Collector - Sparkonit
The Seabin operates with its mouth sitting at water level, while the pump, catch bag and filter all sit below the surface. The pump pulls water in from around the Seabin, bringing it across an outer lip and into the collector itself. This process forms a sort of skimming effect — the surface of the water is being pulled in. Such a design keeps passing fish from being inadvertently pulled into the catch basket.
