One photo, extracted from below the waterline, shows the sun being blocked out by the large weight of the air pollution disposed right into the sea.
Blue Earth Culture, a stress group which campaigns to conserve the world's seas, had actually recommended the plastic could have stemmed from the Montagua river in Guatemala.
Recent video caught a torrent of waste being accomplished to sea from its mouth.
Caroline Power, who resides on Roatan, which is simply 12 miles long and also three miles wide, shared the photos on social networks to increase awareness of the problem.
