A new study shows that 40% of the world’s oceans are “heavily affected” by human activity. But what does that mean?

Human efforts are turning mangrove forests into beachfront resorts, and creating dead zones off the coast of estuaries. There are even sections of the ocean where plastic debris blocks out sunlight. It’s time for a change.

there are many areas of the ocean that are damaged by the humans, the over exploitation is worser than prior.the people are littering all over in the ocean, this can cause the ecosystems in the ocean to die .and the people will be unable to fish.so the poverty will come because the fish is a healthier meat for the people than a red meat.
