Killer pollution

The article ‘’ The effects of pollution on fish health’’ published on December 1998, on the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), the US National Library of Medicine, suggest that the large number of deaths in marine animals are caused by all the pollutants and the heavy metals  released in the water by the humans. The pollutants released into the water do affect marine animals that live there but also, on a long-term, will affect us. It can leads to a lot of incurable diseases. Moreover, the author, Austin B., declare that several surveys indicate that there is a larger number of sick fish in areas where the water is polluted than in the one it is not.

 I am sure that my source is reliable because, even if my article is not recent, it has been published in the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) which is a US National Library of Medicine and the information has never been transformed since. Also, the author of this article is reliable because, according to my source (, Austin B. has graduated from the Department of Biological Sciences, Heriot-Watt University, Riccarton, Edinburgh, UK. This University is really well rated. Also, more than 82% of Heriot-Watt’s research are rated as world leading or internationally excellent in the recent Research Excellence Framework (REF). I can confirm the reliability of my article.

According to me, it is important to conserve our marine animals. The only way to significantly reduce the death of our marine animals is by paying attention to the pollution that accumulates in our habited waters. This way, we ensure better survival of our ecosystem while planning a better future.



I found the subject very interesting! You establish in a good way the purpose of the article. However, I found it a little bit short. You're argumentation to prove the reliability of your sources was longer. You should put more examples as the author of your article did in his article, by telling, by example, what were the effects on the fish.
I wouldn't subject this website for a summary like that, but for information, it is really interesting to see all the aspects of the issue. And there is also the fact that this studies happened to be in Oregon.
I think that if you just put more information, it would have been perfect. The writing is clear and the subject really of actuality and interesting. Really good job!

Water is one of the world’s most important resources and as you have mentioned in your post, its state as well as the health of the species that inhabit it, is in danger. I also noticed that you ended your post by mentioning being concerned about water pollution and how it affects marine wildlife.

Here is your chance to make a difference by helping to clean the Canadian shoreline from its debris. The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup organisation offers many available locations where one can help clean the shoreline.

If you live close to Montréal, you might want to consider this particular opportunity: On 27 Avril 2016 starting at 8:30 am John Abbott and McGill’s MacDonald Campus is organizing a cleanup. The location is Murray park, near the water south of John Abbott campus
