Yes, you're not reading that wrong. While it may sound quite absurd especially after the amazing visuals for the whole movie, and basically throughout the MCU, the VFX Head of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever confirmed that they put in efforts to how fish poop appears in the sequel.

The VFX team of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever made sure that even to the smallest detail, they had to ensure that everything is put in place as Weta supervisor Chris White reveals to ComicBook.com how they planned to put in fish poop in the sequel.

White said, "If you want to talk about minutiae, we were literally discussing the shape of the fish poop that makes up all of the stuff that's floating around, and how we need to make sure that shape is correct. Because when the lighters light it and it's not the right shape, it doesn't look like underwater."

White added, "We have a chart of which someone has modeled of the different shapes of poop that fish excrete, and then made millions of it that floats around them."

"We had someone who was full time just doing that marine snow. What he did the entire film, was for every shot, making sure that it picked up with right motion and had the right character, and the density was correct, and it had the underwater current, and he got notes back on it as well on how to make it better," White further explained.

With the introduction of Namor and the Talokan tribe to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, it opens the eyes of everyone to the existence of more things beyond what the human mind could comprehend, even after the arrival of Thanos and the blip of half of the universe.
