Watersheds and Ocean Ecosytems

Ways humans negatively affect groundwater, surface water, and ocean ecosystems

Pollution from sewage, toxic waste, commercial fishing, urban and agriculture run off , and coastal development are ways humans negatively affect ocean systems. The effects are horrible oil spills, habitat loss and destruction, loss of biodiversity, and endangered species. If these actions continue there will be a loss of biodiversity. Ways to prevent these negative actions is to not litter, use reusable things like cups, use less fertilizer, choose non-toxic cleaning products, and follow catch limits when fishing.
