Did you know that most of the ocean pollution comes from us? This pollution can hurt the ocean animals and it will affect the food that we eat. Some of the most worst ocean pollution is untreated sewage dumped into the ocean, toxic chemical, and oil spills. The sewage gets into the ocean because of sewage pipes that break or leak. This is a problem because the sewage makes to much algae, and it will remove the oxygen. Around 80% of the sewage that is in the ocean is untreated. To help stop sewage from getting into the ocean, you can get a better sewage system that does not leak if you live by the ocean, or a body of water. The next worst problem is toxic chemicals that are dumped into the ocean. These chemicals sometimes get deliberately thrown into the ocean by people. It causes problems because, the chemicals that get dumped into the ocean are eaten by the ocean fish and animals. When they eat the chemicals, the chemicals get absorbed into their body. The fish that eats the fish get the chemicals that the other fish ate. Then, when we eat the fish, we get the chemicals that have been dumped into the ocean. To stop this problem from happening, we can recycle the chemicals safely, and not into the ocean. To continue to the last problem, which is oil spills. Oil spills can be caused by leaky pipes, or oil tankers that can crash and spill oil into the ocean. Or sometimes just deliberately dumping it into the ocean. The reason this is a problem, is because when the oil goes down to the bottom of the ocean, it blocks the sunlight from the ocean and doesn't allow the plant and animals to live. We are guilty of causing around 12% of the oil spills that occur. It also affects the food that we eat, such as the shrimp, crab and other sea food that is eaten. In order to stop the oil spills the best that we can, we could dispose the oil safely by not putting it down the drain, but recycle it by taking it to a special place where they safely dispose it. In
“Over 80% of marine pollution comes from land-based activities” (WWF, May 4, 2006, p.1). The rest comes from ocean-based activities. Different types of pollution enter the ocean each year. The major pollutants are oil, toxic materials, and debris. These materials not only pollute the ocean, but they also affect the marine life. Before the 1970s there were no laws to prevent and stop people from dumping pollutants into the ocean. Since the early 1970s many laws and regulations….
examines the effects that humans have been inducing on the ocean and how the pollution produced is affecting the form of life present there.
There is plenty of evidence that the oceans have deteriorated at the hands of humans, but recent investigations show that deterioration, especially at the sea coasts, has increased significantly in the last years due to increased industrial discharge. Common synthetic pollutants that reach the ocean include pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, detergents….
At your request the formal report presents information on ocean pollution and how it affects the earth. This report presents information in three broad categories: top zone, second zone, third zone. The report includes the six c’s of communication and APA format.
As always, helping you with this report and future endeavors is anticipated.
The pollution of the ocean is rapidly becoming a crucial problem on Earth. The major causes of sea pollution are oil spills, toxic waste, and dumping of other harmful materials into the ocean. This pollution will directly affect the living organisms in the ocean and indirectly affect human’s health and resources. We, as humans, should learn more about these in order to have the knowledge on how to solve this problem effectively.
Oil spill is perhaps the most publicly acknowledged….
Ocean pollution Hannah Waddell
Ocean pollution is a growing problem and affects people as well. It is a growing problem that needs to be stopped and controlled immediately. Taking care of our water will be beneficial for our long-term survival. If we put off this problem any longer, the prices will only escalade even higher. We need water to survive and the ocean is one of the greatest water suppliers. The actions we take or do not take will affect the future in either a negative or a positive….

Ocean Pollution is Destroying the World
We are constantly polluting the ocean never realizing the harm that it does. Pollution is creating an environment impossible to live in. Why should animals suffer at our expense? The ocean used to be the most beautiful place in the world, filled with life and color, but now it has turned into a trash filled monstrosity. We are constantly putting more and more trash into the ocean, making marine animals live in our filth. We must end pollution to save our world….
The End of Ocean Water Pollution
Before the Industrial Revolution, the world’s oceans were pristine, beautiful, and clean. Instead of facing the ocean as an issue, it was considered a great resource. However, in the time that has passed between the Industrial Revolution and today, people have been polluting the world and the seas non-stop. As a result, the state of the water’s cleanliness has deteriorated. Today, however, there are many ways that we can stop ocean pollution. In order to do so, we….
It is believed that 4.6 billion years ago our Earth was formed. And over 200 million years ago the great body of water on this planet, what we call the ocean, was able to be formed (History of the Ocean). For 200 million years our ocean has flourished with the life of all matters of creatures from some of the first ever cells to take life, to pre-historic dinosaurs, to the fish, plants, and mammals we see today. However, today we face a new point in the history of our ocean. Today….
Ocean Noise Pollution
For millions of years, the oceans have been filled with sounds from natural sources such as the squeaks, moans and clicks of whales and dolphins, the snapping of shrimp, the sound caused by wind upon the surface and even the occasional rumble from earthquakes. Over millions of years, the ocean's marine species have developed into what they are today, with their own specialized acute hearing abilities, communication skills and echo location abilities at natural sound levels….
