Water pollution/marine pollution is when foreign chemicals, objects, or substances enter the water that is harmful to plants, animals (including humans), and other living organisms. This is a big problem for organisms that live near or in the water. When you drink contaminated water, you will get sick or even die, and so will the animals in the water. Also, any large floating substances that are opaque will prevent sunlight from reaching organisms that use photosynthesis and break the water food chain in that area. Without water pollution, clean water will cost less, humans will get more uncontaminated food and the food chain will not break.
