1.Threats to marine creatures_01 ¿Deadly fishing
For the past three decades, seal population had halved. Every year 40,000 seals die from being strangled or entangled to abandoned fish net. In addition, more than 250,000 birds are killed every two months in a year from being caught in salmon fishing trawlers of various nationalities in the Pacific, and we could only guess even more, countless of fish or crabs die from abandoned fishnet.

    I am from Micronesia and most of our food come from sea life therefore this problem not only affects the fish but it also affects us, the people that eat it. So all of this is affecting everything

    This kills a lot of fish also and their death is ruining the balance of the ecosystems in the ocean so we should try to help fix and prevent this problem before any irreversible change occurs.

    The affect of pollution has greatly affected our oceans because most of the sea creatures are being killed or badly hurt because of trash being in the ocean.
