The number of marine life species in the oceans is exploding, and some of the most important ones are declining at alarming rates.
In the last decade, more than a dozen species of marine creatures, including sharks, rays, turtles and fish, have been discovered in the ocean, and scientists say the problem isn’t getting better, but rather getting worse.
The new findings are among the latest to underscore the challenges facing marine life in the Pacific.
The discovery of new species is a boon for the oceans, but it’s also a major boon for businesses that are relying on the ocean for their profits.
And in recent years, marine biologists have seen more than 300 new species appear, many of which are on the brink of extinction.
Many are now classified as threats to the oceans and endangered by international governments, with many threatened species now classified under the IUCN Red List.
For years, the federal government has fought to protect some of these species, arguing that some of them are harmful to human health.
But the threat of extinction is not something that many of the states have taken seriously.
The federal government hasn’t done enough to protect the species, and it’s not clear whether that will change anytime soon.
Some states are taking action, but most don’t.
Some have already started to tackle the issue.
A dozen states, including New York and California, have signed laws that prohibit or restrict commercial fishing, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is working on a plan to limit pollution of the oceans.
But even with the increased protections, the number of species that are found is increasing.
In recent years the number and size of fish caught have increased by as much as 2,500 percent, according to a report released this month by the Pew Charitable Trusts.
In many parts of the country, fish stocks have been reduced, and commercial fishing has shrunk, too.
“The oceans have gotten larger and the fish are going to have to move,” said Steve Gannon, president of the New York City-based Fish and Wildlife Conservation Society, which promotes the protection of marine mammals.
Gannon said that many fish species are now on the verge of extinction and that “we can’t keep up.”
But he added that more needs to be done.
The National Marine Fisheries Service, which manages federal fishery rules, estimates that at least 30 percent of the world’s marine mammals have been eliminated from the ocean by the end of the century.
The agency also said that there are about 150,000 species of fish that are considered endangered or threatened, with about 6,000 of those species now considered threatened.
And that includes a variety of marine fish species, including shrimp, tuna and clams.
The oceans are also getting worse for some of those creatures, according the Pew report.
The number of ocean species listed as critically endangered has increased by about 25 percent since 2007.
Scientists say they know of more than 500 species of species in total that have disappeared from the oceans since 2000.
The problem isn�t going away anytime soon, Gannon said, but that’s not good enough.
The Pew report said that although the number is increasing, there are a variety for the world�s oceans to address.
It points to habitat loss, pollution and habitat degradation.
There are already plans in place to reduce the impacts of pollution, but Gannon added that it is up to governments to make the changes they need to be successful.
Some of those changes are already happening.
In 2015, the World Bank, a U.S. lender, announced a $1 billion initiative to help the world reduce the impact of pollution.
The bank also established the Sustainable Marine Lifestyle Fund to provide grants to countries to help address environmental issues.
The fund aims to increase the amount of land available to fish and wildlife, as well as increase fisheries.
“We know that some species are in trouble, but we don�t know how much they are,” said Michael T. Glynn, who directs the Pew Fisheries Program.
Glynn said that in addition to helping species that face extinction, the fund will also help the global economy and the environment.
That could be by encouraging governments to invest in new fisheries, improve fisheries management and develop sustainable fishing methods.
The fund is not yet set up to help states or localities reduce pollution, or to make up for the loss of species, but “that is certainly a place we need to go,” Glynn said.
But in the meantime, the oceans are getting worse, and they’re not getting better fast enough, Glynn warned.
“It’s going to be the oceans that are going extinct, and we need the governments to do it,” he said.
