This shows that an environmental threat that blue crabs face is pollution because if about 1 million animals are dying each year because of pollution, we have a serious problem. Furthermore, another ecological hazard that this incredible animal faces is fishing and it’s equipment. According to the text, “Modern fishing methods have created some serious problems for the ocean. The populations of almost all fish species that we eat have shrunken,”(Dignan 14). This proves that another environmental threat that blue crabs faces are fishing because they may not be a type of fish, but, like most crabs, they are fished, caught and sold.
The ocean is nowadays undergoing numerous environmental issues that further lead to marine pollution. Marine pollution is a very serious environmental issue that most of the countries of the world encounter. Aquatic littering is considered as one of the major causes of marine environment. The misleading use of the marine environment is extremely impacting the marine life and ecosystems. Moreover, the total amount of toxins and debris discharged by human beings is incredibly increasing in today 's world.
This essay will be investigating the extent to which people must reduce overfishing in order to preserve animal populations. Overfishing can be defined as ‘the catching of too many fish resulting in the deterioration of marine biodiversity and food systems, as fish populations decline.’ This essay will overlay the perspectives of Hong Kong, the perspective of Japan, and finally the significance of overfishing on me and my family. Overfishing is a very important discussion because it has become a global issue, resulting in collapse of the entire marine ecosystem. Fish is also one of the main sources of food around the world. The collapse of the marine ecosystem would result in the a massive amount of loss in fish stocks, resulting in the loss of business and the starvation of many people around the world that rely on fish as their major supply of food.
The rate of oil spills has increased rapidly as humans become more reliant on oil as an energy source. In fact, there have been more than 50 mega-spills since 1970. One of the worst effects of oil spills is the immense impact on marine wildlife. Humans should reduce their oil usage because oil spills are harmful to marine mammals, dangerous to whales, destructive to aquatic birds, deadly to fish, and can be as disastrous as the Exxon Valdez oil spill. The effects of oil spills on mammals are catastrophic.
A survey done on the water of Long Island found out that the levels of 1,4-dioxane were so high in the water supplies, and that this generates heightened risk on the population that consumes the contaminated water. The measurement levels of this chemical when measured in a survey revealed that even though the chemical takes years before its effect is felt in the general population, its widespread presence in the water of Long Island is peculiar and raises a concern and need of addressing this issue from the relevant
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch(GPGP), also known as “Pacific Trash Vortex” would be best known as a disaster in our ocean. The GPGP is a collection of marine debris in the North Pacific ocean. The garbage patch is known to expand from the coast of California to Japan. According to marnie scientist Marcus Eriksen, the garbage patch is the largest plastic dump on earth(Eriksen). Much of the marine life is getting damaged and is in danger of dying.
These include billions of tons of waste rock, very deep and wide open pits, high and long miles of dams, and the production of acid mine drainage, all of which can significantly affect wild salmon fishery. The pits can also become a breeding ground of mosquitoes that would cause illnesses to people living nearby. 2. Economic risks Pebble mining may open plenty of job opportunities, but it can also affect the other side of livelihood. A huge population of Alaska is heavily dependent on fishing, and the damage that pebble mining can cause to the fishing industry is likely to cripple a lot of people and communities.
As a result of overfishing, we could lose 90% of ocean fish. In this research paper readers will read about the importance of overfishing. Overfishing is a worldwide problem that is growing to be greater and greater every day. What is overfishing you ask, well i 'll tell you it is when sailors or hunters start to prey on our ocean fish and the amount of them in the sea is decreasing. Overfishing is all over the world in Antarctica overfishing is known as the catching of the fish faster than it was taken to reproduce themselves.

If the Salton Sea starts to dry up severely both wildlife and humans will be affected. The more it dries up, the more toxins are sent into the air. Residents that live near the Sea and even people that live very far away will inhale these toxins that can potentially cause cancer. Deaths have already occurred as a result of this and many more are bound to happen. The Salton Sea serves as an important stop for migrant birds.
Climate change will affect communities in the north by destroying the best way to transport things. Finally, the sea level rise and flooding is a big problem people-wise. Flooding causes millions in damage that sometimes cannot be reversed. Flooding is encouraged by climate change because of the increase in moisture trapped in the air, and rain happening earlier in the year and falling on still frozen ground. Houses being destroyed by increased water also leave people homeless and cost a lot to fix.
Should water companies be blamed for the pollution of the ocean? Plastic and garbages have been polluting our water for years. Many people who litter on the ocean have been a harm to the fish and marine mammals. The marine plastic pollution has impacted about 267 species worldwide. This includes 86% sea turtles species and 44% of all sea birds species.
Threw many studies and research it has been proved that the meat industry is at fault for contaminating our oceans and rivers. It is been noted that the meat industry is at fault for the runoff that is dumped into the rivers and the millions of gallons of manure that is dumped into rivers, oceans and lagoons. As well as endangering the well being of sea creatures. According to the article Devil in the deep blue sea by Brian Palmer, the rainfall washes massive amount of fertilizers into the water “Rains wash excess fertilizer from farms into interior waterways, which eventually empty into the ocean.”. One of the waterways that has indulged the excessive amount of fertilizer is the mississippi river “At the mouths of rivers, such as the Mississippi,
