An Overview of Ocean Pollution

Ruchira Shinde | Sagar Gawande [3]

Abstract: It is said that money can compensate everything, but this a wrong presumption which is proved by the ever increasing pollution in the sea which is destroying the marine life and thus disturbing the whole ecological balance. This paper briefly gives an overview of the ocean pollution and also the impacts created on humans and the aquatic life. In todays advancing era, oceans are the main source for dumping many types of waste such as plastic, oil waste, waste water. For the many years trash is dumped in the ocean causing death of variety of aquatic flora and fauna leading to the extinction of many species of fishes. Millions of animals, including birds, fishes which are solely dependent on water, are killed as a direct consequence of pollution. Other types of oceanic pollution such as oil spills and radioactive and industrial waste, pollution due to festivals are just as costly and can contaminate the oceans for thousands of years to come. This pollution is having hazardous effects like creation of dead zones in various parts of the ocean causing death of depletion of oxygen in the water. If we humans do not curtail our way of living as a token of respect towards oceans, the damage will be irreversible thus causing permanent damages to the environment.
