Marine pollution is the harmful effect caused by the entry into the ocean of chemicals or particles. An associated problem is that many potentially toxic chemical's adhere to tiny particles which are then taken up by plankton and benthos animals, most of which are either deposit or filter feeders, concentrating upward within ocean food chains.5/5(1).

The journal serves as a forum for new information on biology, chemistry, and toxicology and syntheses that advance understanding of marine. In tropical marine ecosystems, biotic factors include sea plants, algae, bacteria, and animals. Abiotic factors are similar to those on land such as sunlight, temperature, and soil nutrients.

However, since the ocean is water, pH and salinity are also considered important abiotic factors that influence and sustain healthy and productive organisms. Bioremediation is about creating an ideal environment for microbes that degrade pollution by providing these organisms with fertilizer, oxygen, and other conditions that encourage their rapid growth.

Microbes often break down pollutants into small amounts of water and harmless chemicals like carbon dioxide. The Effects Of Ocean Pollution On The Sea Turtles And The Food They Eat; The Effects Of Ocean Pollution On The Sea Turtles And The Food They Eat.
