AbstractUsually, marine pollution is the harmful effect caused by the entry into the ocean of chemicals or particles. A possibly related issue is that many potentially toxic chemicals adhere to tiny particles which are then taken up by plankton and benthos animals. Most of them are either deposit or filter feeders, concentrating upward within ocean food-chains. In addition, since most animal feeds contain high fish meal and fish oil content, toxins could be found a few weeks later in commonly consumed food items derived from livestock and animal husbandry. As rivers are the common entrance of contaminants to the marine environment, many particles combine chemically in a manner highly depletive of oxygen, leading to estuaries to become anoxic.
