Marine noise, or marine noise pollution, is made by humans and activities we do in the ocean. It is when loud noise are made from ships, seismic surveys, oil exploration, and sonar. All of these have a serious effect on marine life. The noises effect all creatures, causing them not to be able to find food, or become lost and not find their way home. It also makes them harder to sense danger and harm.
