    The environmental threat posed by oceanic plastic waste, which puts many marine species in peril, is expanding on a global scale. Pinnipeds are extremely prone to becoming entangled, particularly in lost, abandoned, or discarded fishing gear and packaging straps. With the goal of identifying areas of concern and mitigation focus, we explored three international databases to generate a thorough analysis of all recorded pinniped entanglements during the previous 40 years. The majority of entanglement records that have been reported are from North America and Oceania and are concentrated on a small number of widely distributed species (notably, Zalophus californianus and Arctocephalus gazella)...
