COASTAL MARINE POLLUTION

WHO IT EFFECTS

While much of the open ocean is filled with plastics so are marinas, ports and harbors around the world. 

Most importantly the pollution in these areas is not limited to plastics. Many marinas face mass marine die outs, harmful algae blooms, and pesky natural pollutants. 

All along the west and gulf coast marinas, ports, and harbors are plagued with marine debris and have no efficient solutions. 

DIVING DEEPER

MARINE DIEOUT

Oxygen levels in nearshore waterways around the world are dropping like never before. This has some dangerous side effects:

  • large fish die outs

  • reduced water quality

  • reduced botanicals like seagrass 

Unfortunately when these die out events happen it causes masses of fish to wash up in marinas, beaches, and waterways everywhere. 

AGRICULTURAL RUNOFF

Agricultural runoff is a direct result of pesticides, and other agricultural

bi-products causing:

  • algal blooms that kill fish

  • reduce water quality

  • reduce oxygen levels in the water

The only way to resolve this issue is to remove the harmful waste from the water. 

PLASTIC POLLUTION

Plastic pollution doesn't only dwell out in the middle of the oceans. Much of what reaches the oceans starts in inland waterways.  Different weather patterns and currents can easily cause mass amounts of plastic pollutants and natural debris to enter:

  • marinas

  • yacht clubs

  • Harbors

  • Ports

This debris is costly, resulting in fines, property damage, and global contributions to open ocean plastic waste.
