Marine ecosystem is mainly threatened by natural and artificial factors by human interruption. Natural factors such as storms, waves including cyclones, natural radiations, volcanic lava, tsunami and freshwater runoff are affect directly or indirectly the marine biodiversity. The natural factors can change the ocean temperature or pH that leads to changes of nutrient availability, biological productivity, reproductive success, the timing of biological processes (e.g., spawning), biogeography, migrations, community structure, predator-prey relationships, and entire biomes.
