Container ships add toxins to world's oceans
You would be surprised at the amount of modern container ships that are at the bottom of the world's oceans. Just last month a huge container ship collided with an oil tanker off the coast of China sending both of them to the bottom of the sea. Now those ships are not filled with any modern day treasures that will be valued highly in years to come from salvation operations. Those ships are filled with all sorts of wholesale tvs, radios, cars and other assorted items that fill the local Walmart.
Along with those items are often toxic chemicals such as lubricants and paint thinners. You can now see another contributing factor to the lower fish populations in the world's oceans.
