Plastic Pollution 


Plastic pollution in the water can directly kill marine mammals by entwining them in objects such as gill nets and fishing lines, but it can also kill by being mistaken for food and consumed by the animals. The consequences for marine life are catastrophic. Because they resemble fish eggs, plastic nurdles are frequently mistaken for food by fish, gulls, and other species. Once swallowed, the effects on an animal's health are various, but one of the most detrimental effects is that it causes animals to feel frightfully full, which derives them eating actual food and starve. 

Trash items and nurdles also draw hazardous compounds from the sea, like other types of marine plastic pollution, which can build up in animals' bodies after consumption and harm their ability to reproduce and live long lives. When we consume contaminated seafood, the concentrations of these toxins could be harmful and damaging to human health because they are bioaccumulating up the food chain. 

Unlike cartons, plastic containers, and waste products, other forms of plastic pollution can be more difficult to identify. As plastic breaks down, but does not entirely disintegrate, tiny particles known as microplastics are produced. Even clothing made organically can release microplastic fibres when laundered. Microbeads are a different type of microplastic that is occasionally added to products like oral hygiene and beauty products. Because they're unable to screen out sewage, they eventually wind up in our ecosystems. 

Rashid Ahmed,39, a local citizen said "this plastic usage has gone to a big extent and plastic usage should be decreased"

 Numerous species, including zooplankton, large marine mammals, the majority of seabirds, and marine turtles, have been found to readily consume plastic fragments and trash items such as lighters, plastic packaging, and empty bottles.
