Human impacts on the ocean today
How we affect the ocean and how we can help the ocean today
Negative ways we affect the ocean
Today our oceans have been affected by oil spills,human development,overfishing ,pollution, and by to much fertilizer in the water.These terrible things hurt our ocean and the ecosystem inside of the ocean.Oil spills can be very dangerous,they can hurt millions of living organisms in the ocean and the living outside of the ocean.Oil spills can not only hurt animals but can cause our ocean to turn parts of it black making it very dangerous to us and all the living animals in the ocean.Human development near the coast of the ocean has a really big affect on the ocean,it can cause the ocean to erode crust or rocks a lot faster.When this happens the ersoin can happen more quickly then its suppose to and can lead to waters rising and the change in increasing temperature. Overfishing is another really bad affect we have on the ocean, each year many sailors fish for tuna,crab, and many other fish in big nets to provide us with nutrients from the fish for food. But when overfishing takes place more fish are caught, reducing the fish species which can lead to extinction of the fish where they can not repopulate themselves to survive. Pollution is very big deal to all,outside on land or in the ocean each day we see trash and chemicals in the water, these trash and chemicals goes into runoffs which leads to the ocean. Once pollution gets to the ocean trash is everywhere which harm the animals, fish will sometimes eat the trash as food which can kill them and as for the chemicals fish swim in the chemicals which can make them very sick and die. And last but not least one more way we affect the ocean is by having to much fertilizer in the water, farmers use fertilizer to help their plants grow, but once rain comes it swoops up the fertilizer and makes it goes to a stream or runoff leading to the ocean. Once fertilizer gets to ocean it can cause the growth of algae, algae can be very dangerous it can cause the coral to not get enough sunlight to make oxygen which can lead to a dead with no fish and fertilizer can also makes the organisms very sick which can lead to death.
