Ocean Colonies

It occurred to me, it would be really cool, if one of these ocean colonies could start up near the floating trash vortex in the pacific ocean. I find it offensive that we're just leaving a giant pile of trash in the middle of the ocean.

So if there was only some way a colony could turn a profit cleaning that mess up. At the very least the plastic could be cleaned up, recycled, and turned into more structures for the colony. But colonies usually need some kind of trade with a developed region in order to stay viable.

Cleaning up the trash vortex might also be a good test case for developing tele-operated robotics.
