As first timers, we learned that ocean pollution is a serious environmental problem that affects the health of people, endangers marine wildlife, and costs states and nations millions of dollars in wasted resources and lost revenue. Ocean pollution also complicates our shipping and transportation business by causing navigational hazards. At its core, however, ocean pollution is not an ocean problem; it is people problem perpetuated by the often unwitting practices that industries and people have adopted over time.
