Exploring Our Marine

No matter how far you live from the shore, the ocean affects our lives. As well as supporting diverse ecosystems, our ocean is an important source of food and provides us with the oxygen we breathe. Our ocean also regulates our climate, is a gateway for shipping, offers tourism and recreation opportunities and supports a diverse marine industry.
