Care of the Oceans
Care of the Oceans has gone up because of concern about over fishing. So, the trend is toward Sustainable fishing.
It is everybody’s business to take care of the oceans. Ocean water supports a wide array of marine life, and it
also supports the overall water cycle of our Earth. Water has been called the “staff of life”, and marine environments
such as Indonesia and Oceania have vibrant, active environments and moderate weather patterns, and plenty of real life.
Colonizing the seas
Colonizing the Ocean is currently being proposed. For example, some floating smart city designers want all fishing
to be stopped. Vertical farming would nourish the colonists. Some floating cities proposed in the
Pacific near the equator would have net zero carbon and zero waste. There is also less wave action
or storms near the equator. So there would be greater chance of survival and success. Further, there are
floating smart cities proposed in the Mediterranean sea and in the Japanese current.
We have all read about the garbage patches in the Oceans, particularly in the Pacific and the Indian
Ocean. Recent attempts to clean the oceans of plastic have failed. The net (on a long boom) which is supposed
to catch the plastic works, but the plastic slips through the net. So, engineers want to improve it.
In other geographical areas such as India the problem is more with plastic milk containers
collecting on the beaches. Because their removal is a difficult task.
Saving a Blue World
In another article, I discuss the idea of saving a blue world. See
You may have experienced the ocean at a resort. Beaches are a popular activity belt and shelter a
wide variety of life in the inter tidal zone. However, recreation is not the only purpose for those beaches.
Here are 10 ways to take action. You may know some of these already. You may not have thought
of some of these.
So whether you are a beachcomber or a scuba diver the National Geographic
Society wrote these ideas just for you!
A social approach
For info on a newer social approach to the ocean and seas, see
To summarize, the Oceans are a living staff of life. Water is essential to life. We cannot afford to
pollute, contaminate, create waste in, or otherwise degrade and ruin or tarnish our Oceans.
