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. There are different types of ways that plastic is dangerous for humans.
This is common for those that reside amongst red tides because they are constantly inhaling the brevetoxins in the atmosphere. Furthermore, neurological and gastrointestinal problems occur as a result of ingesting toxic shellfish, fish, molluscs, clams, and other marine life that have become infested by the brevetoxins. This leads to the different types of poisonings caused by fish, including PSP, ASP, DSP, and NSP, each having distinct symptoms according to the toxin they were produced by. Marine life has also been impacted by red tides, specifically by the harmful toxins that HABs produce, which has lead to the deaths of manatees, bottlenose dolphins,
In order to improve the marine environment, the government and the Environment Public Authority of Kuwait should take immediate actions that can influence the society and help in minimizing aquatic debris and pollution. Aquatic littering and marine pollution can be caused by a number of different sources. Aquatic littering can be further categorized into two main sources, namely, land-based sources and marine-based sources. Land-based sources that pollute the marine environment include local drainage systems, fleeting streams and sewage drainage. Industrial, agricultural and domestic activities also play a vital role in causing marine pollution.
CONTROLLING THE RISK: As we can see the sources and how the water is being contaminated we can know how this can impact the world. With the pollution the rate of unadulterated drinking water is diminishing quickly. Numerous individuals are getting debilitated because of drinking this water. The natural framework is being hurt by this as the species living water are biting the dust. Due to the water pollution a wide range of sorts of fishes which we used to discover in past are not discovered today.
Thus, wastes from offshore drilling can accumulate on the sea floor causing disabilities to the aquatic animals such as, malformation, genetic damage, and mortality in fish embryos. Marine organisms that live near an existing oil spill area are usually exposed to pollution in the form of
Organic mercury exposure could come from eating seafood in which mercury has bio-accumulated within marine animals such as tuna. This seems to be the main pathway for exposure in humans. If water is contaminated with organic mercury, it could result in exposure if the contaminated water is used as drinking water. Occupational exposure to organic mercury could occur during the process where mercury is used to fungus-proof material. In addition, workers that use paints and other materials containing mercury would be at risk of exposure.
Unfortunately our oceans are suffering from many types of pollutants that are prominent in our environment. One of the main distributors of pollution is sewage. Sewage and other polluting substances flow into the world's rivers and drainage pipes until all of the substances dump out into the ocean. In addition to sewage, other chemicals finds its way to the oceans, which leads to the reduction of oxygen being released into the atmosphere. With this in place, the waters become murky and filled with substances that can harm marine life.
How to mitigate the problem of damn impoundment to Tor sp Dam impoundments create barriers across rivers that gives negatives impacts on natural fish populations. The dam impoundment can contribute to the disappearance and exticntion of species and also diminished abundance. Tor sp is one of species affected by dam impoundment. Mitigation measures are really need to prevent the problem from arise. A) Construction of fish passage There are three ways of fish migrations.
Water pollution is a very prevalent problem throughout the world. It affects ecosystems, deters the natural food chain, and can cause disease in both animals and humans. But is water pollution affecting natural lakes and ponds in local areas? In this experiment, Daphnia magna will be used in a bioassay to find if water from local areas is habitable for aquatic organisms. Daphnia magna are small freshwater invertebrate organisms.
1. Introduction Due to the extensive use of pharmaceutical active compounds (PhACs), a wide range and different of PhAC residues occurs in the aquatic environment. Their fate is potentially a major issue that is yet to be understood .Extensive use of antibiotics for disease prevention, treatment of microbial infections and promotion of animal and plant growth have led to the frequent detection of different antibiotics and their by products in the environment [2,3]. The antibiotics distribution in the environment can increase the resistance of bacteria and subsequently compromise public health by preventing treatment of infections caused with these bacteria ; and this is one of the major challenges for human and veterinary medicine. one of the most widely used antibiotics in human and veterinary medicine is Ciprofloxacin (CIP), that is a third-generation of Fluor quinlones.
This can be a problem when there are fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, pet waste, oil, and other pollutants on the ground that can get washed into the storm drain. When these pollutants are on impervious surfaces that do not allow soil to soak and filter contaminants out, they go into storm drains. Pollutants in the Puget Sound can be harmful to marine life. According to King County, less than half of salmon and steelhead stocks in the Puget Sound are healthy (“What is Stormwater Runoff?”). Many people rely on fish in this area for food, business, and recreation.
