POLLUTION AND THE OCEAN
One of the main reasons of ocean pollution is garbage dumping. What is garbage dumping, you ask? When humans dump their garbage or other harmful materials into the ocean. Most of these materials are from garbage, the water from bathing, and plastics. The garbage can also come from sewage. Whenever the sewage pipes overflow from heavy rains or floods, it can make its way into the ocean or a river or another source that leads into the ocean. Sewage pollution can also lead to oxygen depletion. It could have diseases and could be very bad for the ocean, which would result in beach closings. Garbage dumping is bad for the sea life, too. A fish of some sort can eat a piece of plastic, for example, thinking it would be food. Then, it could die from suffocation.
