Due to overloaded and highly concentrated chemical compounds released in the Marine Environment (ME), primarily from land-based human activities, they create dead zones. These dead zones are causing impact on aquatic life and the environment.
Marine creatures are experiencing tragic results, frequently because they consume floating plastic debris, bags, packaging foam, and other solid waste products due to land-based human activities. Algal blooms lead to the extinction of animals like fish, turtles, dolphins, and shrimp in the Liberian waters and loss of other biodiversity. A plan, education and strategies are required to prevent, limit, and control LBP sources in the ME.
The ME is not adequately protected from LBP due to inadequate knowledge of the importance of the Ocean, valuable goods and services its offer. As a result, The Ocean Matter (TOM) will provide ocean literacy initiatives and work with the government in the development of the Liberia Ocean Governance Strategy.
