Alibaug; Jayant Dhulap: Degradable elements are entering the oceans in large quantities through pollution. Their decomposition process takes place in these oceans. For that, oxygen in sea water is used. Carbon dioxide is produced in this process, which is a very dangerous process that has been going on for the last few years. A recent research has come to the conclusion that it is dangerous not only for marine animals but also for humans. (World Oceans Day)
Dr. Head of Department of Marine Biology, Government Fisheries College, Ratnagiri. Swapnaja Mohite has done this research. Every year June 8 is celebrated as ‘World Ocean Day’. On this occasion, the information of this research was taken. (World Oceans Day)
The theme of this year’s Ocean Day is ‘The Ocean: Life and Livelihoods’. The theme for the decade 2021 to 2030 is Ocean Science Development for Sustainable Development. World Oceans Day was decided by the United Nations in 2008 and has been celebrated since 2009. (World Oceans Day)
Dr. Swapnaja Mohite has made a detailed presentation in this research. In it, he mentioned that the loss of life caused by human activities must stop somewhere. Man is considered to be the most intelligent animal on earth. Similarly, it is human who interferes in nature. (World Oceans Day)
The survival of marine life today depends on human behavior. After the industrial revolution, air pollution, water pollution, soil pollution, noise pollution have happened in a large amount all over the world. Major countries are conducting various dangerous tests in the oceans. Similarly, missile tests are also conducted in oceans. In a way, the oceans are threatened by the over-ambitious activities of humans.
Oceans provide us with life gas Oceans provide human beings with a huge amount of food and other resources. But after the industrial revolution in the last 25 to 30 years, seas and oceans are getting heavily polluted. Ocean life is endangered. The economies of many countries in the world, including India, depend on the oceans. Many waterways around the world are very important for trade and travel.
As it is important to create public awareness on World Ocean Day, it is equally important to take effective and honest measures to prevent marine pollution from the government level. This shows how important the oceans are from the point of view of human and other life forms.
