The UN Ocean Conference has made a scary announcement.

By the year 2050, plastics dumped into the world's oceans could outweigh fish. 

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said Monday that the oceans are "under threat as never before."

He added, "pollution, overfishing and the effects of climate change are severely damaging the health of our oceans. According to one recent study, plastic could outweigh fish — if nothing happens — in our seas by 2050."

There were representatives of nearly 200 countries in attendance in New York City for the five-day conference.
