Importance of Oceans
The ocean is the heart of the planet. Marine plants such as Posidonia produce 70% of the oxygen we breathe, and are some of the largest creatures on earth and on Earth in deep water. It provides us food, job, life, entertainment, life is not possible without the ocean.
Importance of Oceans
Oxygen extracts a large amount of production from Amazon
It is often thought that the rainforest is the primary source of oxygen on the planet, but the truth is that the rainforest accounts for only 28% of the oxygen on Earth while the oceans are responsible for 70%. No matter how far we live from the sea, every ten breaths you come from the seven seas.
Have you ever seen a tree in the middle of the sea?
This is because the ocean does not need them, the phytoplankton have covered it. Phytoplankton is a microbial plant, a component of plankton, that spends its life being carried by ocean currents. Basically, these tiny creatures act in the same way as the leaves of a tree do on the ground. Phytoplankton absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. We don’t see them, so we forget about them if we know about them in the first place. They are one of the tiniest creatures on the planet, but the most important to keep us alive.
The ocean lies on Earth.
In many ways, the sea controls our climate. It absorbs heat and carries hot water from the equator to the poles, and the warm water from the poles to the tropics. Without these currents, the weather would be extreme in some areas, and habitable in low places.
It controls rain and drought. Holding 97% of our planet’s water, almost all of the rain that falls on the ground comes from the sea. The ocean absorbs CO2, keeping the carbon cycle, and accordingly the temperature on Earth, in balance.
Ocean is very important source food for life
The ocean is the number one source of protein for over one billion people. Fish consumption accounts for about 15.7% of animal protein globally. However, not everything is fish and seafood. Humans have traditionally used algae and sea plants to cook sushi, seaweed, sea grapes, seafood, etc. in the Philippines.
Given the growing population of 1.5 million people each week, we are relying more and more on the ocean for survival, and we need an alternative and nutritious food source. For those who are not into eating insects, edible seaweed may be a good option. Many organisms live and live in the ocean.
Ocean is home for Millions of species
The ocean is not just the home of ocean lovers for us, but it is also home to the greatest abundance of life on our planet. When you cross an ocean, you will see a dolphin, whale or turtle taking a breath. This is what we see on the surface; There is more life under the sea surface than on land. Experts predict that more than 300,000 different species are underwater, and it is still unclear how many of them we know.
Importance of Oceans is essential in trophic chain of ecosystems
All organisms living in the ocean play an essential role in the trophic chain of ecosystems. Due to climate change, the ocean is warming and losing oxygen, and its pH is decreasing. Many marine species are already adjusting their geographic and depth range with changes in sea temperature. However, not all species can take steps to avoid thermal stress, and global warming is already correlated with large-scale mortality in the Mediterranean Sea.
With over 60% of the world’s population living on the coastline, we all depend on a healthy sea as much as these beautiful creatures.
The best holidays are closed to water
The ocean is a happy region! Our temple, our life, our second home, our place of life. This is where we swim, surf, sail, dive, chill, and ‘lime’. Family holidays and Sundays are often on the beach. For sailors, fishermen and islanders, it is also a transport area. It takes us to new lands, and connects us with nature and each other.
As sailors, we also serve as lifestyle teachers, ambassadors, and advocates on the water. Together we share a passion for the ocean, and an intense desire to keep our playground clean and safe forever. Waterways are important to our health for us and for generations to come.
