This devastation affects a majority of the U.S. being one of our largest sources of fresh water, and will only continue to deplete, as companies carelessly dump their waste into the lake. Consumption of fish from this lake will soon be obsolete if immediate action is not taken. These are all things that need to be considered by industrial businesses, families, merchants, fishermen, and environmentalists. As long as the waters are polluted the economy will experience great loss, and may even see jobs created by the Great Lake, eventually
The poisons will kill fish and the reef in which the fish live because there is no precise way to deliver it. The fishermen will dump the poison on the water in a likely spot and catch what floats up. The problem with poison is that it does not choose what it kills, so it kills reefs and poisons the area for new generations, then the fishermen go on to another area to repeat the destruction. [ (Coral Reef Destruction and Coversation) ] 2. Red is the endangered areas In image 2, the most endangered reefs are in areas that are considered “Third World”, where populations have limited access to education.
Keeping the Ocean Free of Debris Pollution in the Persian gulf is negatively impacting marine life How much are we trashing our ocean? CNN, February 12th 2015. Arabian Gulf coral reefs dying a slow death. Gulf news, June 10th, 2014. Spill, Dolphin Deaths Spark Alarm At Persian Gulf Pollution.
Areas around the world known as “Dead Zones” are being reported as “areas so low in oxygen that fish and other sea life cannot survive (Oceans Where Fish Choke. November 30, 2010).” These areas are accosted with highly populated coastal areas that are being overfished and have rich nutrient run off coming from land causing massive decline in phytoplankton. Biological Oceanographers worldwide study dead fish that continue to surface on shore by searching for a solution to the problem. Many believe the zones are created due to climate change; however, it is more logical that the constant drain off of the high nutrients is feeding the dilemma. Low oxygen levels increase stress on fish.
In this environmental disaster, 10 cubic meters of water and 4.5 million cubic meters of potentially toxic slurry were spilled into virtually untouched forest, lakes and rivers. If something like this happens at the Pebble Mine, then most of the fish and wildlife in Bristol Bay would be in danger of being killed. A species that would be greatly affected by this is the sockeye salmon. More than half of the world’s population of these fish lives in Bristol Bay. This means that the survival of this species would be threatened.
In fact, scientists report that this problem is so serious that virtually all seafood now contains plastic. We’re fast running out of space for landfills—especially near cities. Seaside cities have been dumping trash into their oceans for decades to circumvent the problem, but with widespread marine ecological collapse, this is no longer a viable option. Other things include air pollution from factories. B.
Contaminating these waters will not only harm the wildlife, but it will kill a source of food that is so dominant in Newfoundland, and also will harm hundreds of people’s jobs. Oil spills cause a lot of problems in our ocean and to our marine life. Everywhere you look people are trying to create a more sustainable ocean, and this is hard to do when there is so much pollution and threats to our environment all around us. We, as youth need to step up and try to make a change and help to make our province a better place. We can help thousands of animals survive by taking action against oil drilling in our
Aquatic Invertebrates: Adaptations and Feeding Guilds INTRODUCTION Global warming and human's authoritative influence on the environment such as deforestation, pollution etc. are taking a bad toll on the diversity of the ecosystem. Global warming which has brought about increase in the temperatures is disturbing the natural cycle of the ecosystem. This has brought upon an increased droughts throughout the world. The droughts and increased heat has had negative impacts on local aquatic invertebrates.
Shark Cull POV Shark Cull POV Good afternoon everybody I’m here to talk about how shark culling is effecting the environment and how it is affecting other species in the marine life. Shark culling not only endangers other marine species, but it also targets endangered shark species and the number of sharks are continuously reducing. Netting for example is an unreliable source of culling sharks as it not only affects sharks, but also affects other species which is not healthy for the marine economy. By culling sharks they are preventing sharks from producing in numbers and increase endangered species. Not only does culling affect the sharks it also strikes the eco system of coral and reefs.
According to Everglades.org, they’ve “contributed to nearly 70 percent of extinctions in the United States” and are the “primary cause of species endangerment.” The water itself is a major cause of decline to the area, firstly because of poor water management leading to water levels being too low or too high at the wrong times has caused a decline in many species. Secondly, poor water quality has had devastating consequences. The pollution and an abundance of toxins and nutrients has helped to kill off many living things in the
