Many different theories have been suggested to explain why the East Coast Fishery collapsed. A few examples include overfishing, destructive fishing practices, and changes in natural conditions. Primarily, overfishing plays a huge role in the collapse of the East Coast Fishery. The amount of catch allowed by the federal government was extensively high. Scientists may have overestimated the number of fish reaching adulthood each year, due to this more fish were caught then reached maturity. In addition, the collapse of the East Coast Fishery also revolves around the theory of destructive fishing practice. Many fishing practices can be extensively proficient at harvesting fish, but they often accidently catch non- target species, these species (also known as bycatch) are usually thrown/tossed away.
Climate change is a huge issue around the world. It is melting the polar ice caps, which is rising the sea level wiping out cities along the coastline. Also because of the ice caps melting many animals that live on it are going extinct. The animals that don’t live on the ice caps are also going extinct because they can’t adapt at the alarming rate that the climate is changing. Some animals are starting their migration earlier and other animals are going to higher elevations (higher than they should) to get cooler weather. There are some creatures that are thriving because of the heat, one of them is the bark beetle. The bark beetle is killing off trees by eating at the inner bark cutting off its circulatory system, leaving the trees with little to none nutrients to live on. Another thing that is killing off trees is wildfires. The amount of
Do you want an environment crisis to happen? Do you know what causes it? Do you know what it is and what will happen? Heat trapping gasses such as carbon dioxide, methane, pollutants. There are also fossil fuels, primarily coal, petroleum, and natural gases. There are droughts, floods, acidifying oceans, dissolving coral reefs, and faltering plankton stocks caused by those things (745). All of these things can and will cause a devastating crisis in the world. The past, present, and the future have and will be exposed and affected by all of those things. Some of the insects we need now to take care of this earth and to help the animal and human population survive, may not be here in the future. The animals are getting affected by the environmental
This quote said by Washington State Governor, Jay Inslee shows the severity of climate change “We are the first generation to feel the sting of climate change, and we are the last generation that can do something about it.” “On Earth human activities are changing the natural greenhouse of the Earth.” (A blanket around the Earth). Burning fossil fuels is causing carbon dioxide to be released into the air. By releasing this gas into the air the natural greenhouse gases increase and cause many effects to happen. Carbon dioxide is also caused by removing natural resources from the land for agriculture.
The tourists who visit Lee County are awfully repugnant and it seems that as a whole the tourists have something akin to a complete loss of decency and common sense. The tourists display poor driving skills coupled with a high propensity for the destruction of public property and consistently high blood alcohol levels. These are a few examples of the offensive behaviors that the tourists burden the locals of Lee County with. This is no small demographic either there are a large number of tourists that they seemingly outnumber the local residents. Without doubt, the local residents endure the most intolerable behavior from the tourists at the height of tourist season.

In this section of the project will attempt to identify the key issues that Royal Caribbean Cruises faces. In addition, this section will identify potential long-term objectives.
The desalination process requires the use of a lot more natural resources and what is left creates a never ending cycle of issues to the environment, the economy, our health and local ecosystems. Unfortunately, countries that cannot afford to pay for the high costs of desalination plants have to search for a cheaper alternative to help them meet their water needs as desalination plants cost millions of dollars to build and maintain. The construction of desalination plants and its function has an overall negative effect on the environment since it harms the biodiversity of the nearby ecosystems through the desalination process. As a result, fishermen will have a hard time looking for seafood as plants and animals are sucked up by desalination
According to world wildlife organisation, overfishing occurs when more fish are caught than the population can replace through natural reproduction. Gathering as many fish as possible may seem like a profitable practice, but overfishing has serious consequences. The results may not only affect the balance of life in the oceans, but also the social and economic well-being of the coastal communities who depend on fish for their way of life.
Since Cuba is a primary tourist state with many industries, it creates tons of waste annually. In a year, roughly about 113.5 gallons of seawater are subject to the dumping of agricultural, industrial, and urban waste. Furthermore, 864 gallons of water in lakes and rivers throughout the country is also contaminated. A large part of the contamination comes from the ground after plants and trees have been soaked in fertilizers, insecticides, and herbicides. The chemicals are absorbed into the ground and travel into surrounding bodies of water. This makes sense as Cuba’s warm climate is ideal for farming and makes up a large part of its economic well being. Moreover, industrial liquids have recently been reported of being dumped directly into the water. The contamination that occurs due to the nickel industry is one of the most serious contributors of water pollution in Cuba. Roughly about 3 gallons of chemicals from only one of the three nickel factories are dumped into the
There are other ways also that affects the ocean through global warming. Plenty of things that are happening to the ocean are associated to global warming. One important thing is warm water which is caused from global warming and it is harming and killing algae in the
Ocean polluting has big impact on human’s health too. As those chemicals are ingested by the animals, it is not good for humans. Because we are at the end of the food chain, we consume contaminated fish and mammals. We might consume much more toxic chemicals than the sea animals.
Tourism has experienced continued growth and extensive diversification and competition on the last decades, becoming one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the world and by consequence, one of the main income sources for many developing countries.
Cruise tourism is one of the largest components in tourism industry and also one of the fastest growing industry in the world. It has generating revenue and creating job opportunities in many country. The growth rate of cruise tourism has been almost twice the average rate of traditional land-based tourism. Cruise tourism has provide few real jobs and business opportunities for local resident. The impact of cruise tourism on a location are not only positive but also has its negative. The cruise industry has been experiencing an important expansion in past 20 years. Cruises tourism are popular in the United States and in 2007, 10 million Americans took a cruise vacation representing 76 % of the total cruise passengers of the World and is expected 51 million of them cruising in the next there years (CLIA, 2008). Nowadays, there are about 300 liners sailing the world 's seas, with further 35 ships scheduled to join the global fleet over the next four years representing investments over U$D 20 billion.
“ Natural gas industry has been identified as a major source of water pollution “ ( source 1 ). This quote from source 1 explains how out of all the ways of polluting the oceans, oil is always one of the worst. “ 8 million metric tons of plastic trash enters the sea from land every year “ ( source 4 ). This quote from source number 4 explains how every year tons and tons of plastic from land, gets into the oceans and continues to pollute. Garbage is polluting the oceans so much that the water is getting so bad, people are getting ill from drinking
However, it still cannot avoid some issues such as the piracy and terrorist issues. Besides that, the increasing of the ships and other maritime related activity will bring the issue of the environmental pollution issue. It will bring the threats of maritime pollution because of the accidental spills, illegal dumping of waste, and so on. As well as, that will influence the health of the human and organism inside the sea. Therefore, to address maritime security concern requires international efforts. To scope the maritime safety and health issues are including action which taken by government organization and evolution of
