Ocean Pollution: The Unseen Tragedies
They say water is life. However, it is soon becoming the opposite. Many lives are at risk
because of the water we use. The oceans face a lot of contamination, some of which go
unnoticed (Zarghami et al. 139). The marine pollution problem has also remained unaddressed
for many years. This is probably because the pollution takes place below the waters and is not
directly experienced According to Leal et al., many countries have undergone excess marine
pollution, including China, India and the US (3). China leads this list following its high rate of
air pollution. Air pollution is one factor that promotes ocean pollution because water absorbs air,
and in this case, the air is completely contaminated. There are many other sources of
contaminants that cause a vast damage to the oceans, which will be discussed in this report. Most
waters are today poisoned, and are unfit for marine life and even human life. Ocean pollution is a
significant environmental factor that needs to be thoroughly addressed because it is faced by
unseen tragedies, which include Runoffs, Intentional Discharge, Atmospheric Pollutants, and
Deep-Sea Mining.
Runoff is considered the movement of water from the land into the oceans, which results
in contamination of the ocean (Zarghami et al. 137). Water that flows from land consists of mud,
dust, and other waste. Mud and dust result in a discolored and dirty-looking water. Other wastes
such as paper, wraps, plants, contaminate the ocean and prevent the water from absorbing
enough oxygen. Apart from contamination, these wastes threaten the marine life. Some fishes

even die due to suffocation. Also, there have been cases of other sea animals being noticed
having plastic bags wrapped around them or in their tails. This makes their movements across the
ocean restricted. Additionally, Zarghami states that, “When runoff becomes excess, it causes
flooding” (140). Flooding causes excess contamination of the ocean. Some examples of serious
runoffs were experienced in the Northern and Midwest America (Fairén et al. 53). These were
cases of great floods in history that completely destroyed the oceans.
