The oceans are a part of the surface of the planet occupied by sea water that surrounds the continents and currently covers about 71% of the Earth, 361 million km2.

Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Antarctic and Arctic are their names.

They give life and allow life with the 70% of oxygen they release into the atmosphere through the plankton that is in the sea.

Once again, Man is destroying a good that is yours and precious ...

"We must save the oceans if we want to save mankind," Jacques Cousteau
