BBC News - Health of oceans 'declining fast'
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-24369244

he health of the world’s oceans is deteriorating even faster than had
previously been thought, a report says.

A review from the International Programme on the State of the Ocean (IPSO),
warns that the oceans are facing multiple threats.

They are being heated by climate change, turned slowly less alkaline by
absorbing CO2, and suffering from overfishing and pollution.

The report warns that dead zones formed by fertiliser run-off are a
problem.

It says conditions are ripe for the sort of mass extinction event that has
afflicted the oceans in the past.
