In 2019, a study by the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has estimated that 17,000 liters of oil have leaked out daily over the past 15 years.
These man-made leaks, most of which are preventable, threaten marine wildlife.
Boats, oil tankers, degassing and other garbage pollute the seabed and cause the disappearance of hundreds of marine species.
These polluting practices also take place in the fishing industry. In other words, the fish from fishing are exposed to oil, and then find themselves in our plates.
