Abstract

Coastal marine systems are among the most ecologically and socio‐economically vital to the environment and local livelihood. Marine habitats from the intertidal zone out to the continental shelf break are estimated to provide over trillions worth of ecosystem goods (e.g. food and raw materials) and services (e.g. disturbance regulation and nutrient cycling) per year. However, there is a strong scientific consensus that coastal marine ecosystems, along with the goods and services they provide, are threatened by anthropogenic global climate change. Recent climatic trends, which are only a fraction of the magnitude of predicted changes in the coming centuries, have already triggered significant responses in the Earth's biota. As these serious degradation of marine ecosystem changes continue, marine pollution and far‐reaching consequences for human health and welfare are eminent.

First, we review recent advances in our understanding of the sources of marine pollution and types of marine pollution. Next, the impacts of metal pollution by bio accumulation and bio magnification are assessed. We also highlight other marine pollution such as thermal pollution, radioactive pollution, litter and plastics pollution. Finally, solutions for marine pollution are discussed in hopes that the effects of marine pollution may be successfully mitigated and better managed to conserve our precious coastal marine species and habitats.

Keywords: Eutrophication, Metal pollution, Thermal pollution, Radioactive pollution, Litter and plastics pollution.
