This is the problem with most plastics, they break down over time, but don't disappear.

 

I've tried to get some impartial evidence on the residue left by PVA bags used in angling, but can't find any. The amount I've seen used on some stillwater fisheries, begs the questions, what residue is left in the water, what form is it in, and what accumulative effect (if any), does it have on the fish or the aquatic environment over time?
