Boating and Shiping
What it Really Does to Marine Life
When boats leak they can admit oil into the bay polluting the water and when boats get wrecked, The exhaust from a boat also go into the water just like with cars. propellers on boats turn up mud and living creatures on the bay floor which could lead to confused animals and mud and oil mixed together.
