What is the difference between flotsam and Jetsam? Do the rules of ‘finders keepers’ apply to items found on shore? (Spoiler alert – No!). Why is there so much plastic in the ocean and what can we learn from the humble rubber duck? All of these questions and more will be answered during a lively panel debate.

This event is part of the contemporary maritime series in partnership with the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich.
