It is estimated that a minimum of 5.25 trillion plastic objects weighing 268,940 tons are found in the world's oceans [1]. Techniques such as ship observations, net trawling and water filtration help estimate the amount of plastic debris at the local scale [2]. The main goal of this research is to devise an automatic method for detecting and classifying marine debris. To this end, we are using two machine learning methods: A. Bag of Features B. CNN using Bottleneck to create classifiers able to
