    Abstract:
    One of the key aspects to preserving our oceans are testing mechanisms that are safe, efficient and effective. Not only are testing mechanisms related to oceanic preservation, but the same type of testing mechanisms help the community locally as well with things such as beach water testing. There are many different reasons why these testing methods are quite critical and important. For starters, mineral offloading helps fix the polluted areas in our ocean or places that need clean-up. Also, harmful bacteria can be quite dangerous. Detecting certain levels of toxins can give you an idea on what these toxins attract. Many forms of flesh-eating bacteria can even be floating around in local lakes. Testing the safety of our water can prevent a drastic accident from happening as a result of dangerous bacteria. One must also keep in mind that this is our ecosystem. A large percentage of the ocean is unexplored, and an overwhelming majority of earth’s surface is covered in water. Things like oceanic colonization may even be possible in the future depending on how far technology can take us. This can also be related to sensory mechanisms. Preserving our oceans helps create a positive domino effect on the environment. This is why it is important to look at currently existing detection mechanisms, and what one can learn from them. This is a crucial first step.
