“The team was originally conducting a trial of different types of ‘fyke nets’ – a type of trap anchored to the river bed – that would allow invasive Chinese mitten crabs to be harvested while allowing endangered eels to escape. But they spent so long clearing plastic rubbish from the nets that they thought this alone merited further study.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/jan/02/plastic-waste-thames-marine-life-report)

Sometimes you can’t see the crabs for the crap. Sometimes you can’t see the wool or the eels.
