Global Warming

Global Warming is caused by us humans burning to much fossil fuel and that is bad for the atmosphere the gas gets trapped in the atmosphere and that causes the earth to heat up and it starts melting and evaporating water. When the water evaporates it makes the sea level to lower and then the fish will get trapped in land and die because they wont have water to survive.

Pollution

People throw out contaminated water back in the clean ocean water and that causes the water to get contaminated with germs and waste. That will make the water unclean to swim in and to fish their.
