In an article by Popular Science, they talk about how half of marine life population has disappeared in the last 45 years. The article also notes that by 2050, coral reefs will face extinction by 2050 if the current rate of pollution in the ocean continues. Ocean species like Tuna have declined by 74% and seas cucumbers have declined by over 90%. Though they do point out that due to a change in ocean conservation policy such as increasing ocean protection zone have increased fishing laws. Many of these zones are now starting to return to there previous state. So although we have done a lot o damage, we have a chance to fix it and not lose a valuable eco system.
