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 (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21182713), 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.
