Rapid oxygen depletion in oceans

Research on climate change has yielded disturbing results. It has been reported that the effects of climate change are also affecting the earth along with the sea. 

Sea levels are rapidly depleting oxygen due to rising temperatures and climate changes around the world. So far more than forty thousand oceans have been identified in which oxygen is rapidly depleting and Oxygen deficiencies are big threat to fishes.

Chemicals that fall into the ocean from industries contain large amounts of phosphorus and nitrogen in the water, destroying the marine environment. Research also revealed that carbon dioxide is  rapidly rising in the atmosphere, and is also damaging the ocean and because of this, seawater is absorbing high temperatures inside it and lack of oxygen is a threat to aquatic life and it is likely that 40% of marine animals will die from it.

If this situation persist, 2% or 4 % oxygen of the world’s oceans will be left after two years. However, big fishes approaching water level is a clear sign of this
