The oceans of the world bear much of the brunt of mankind's hunt for resources and burning of fossil fuels.
The damage being inflicted on the Oceans is out of sight and out of mind for most people and hence few of us are alive to the seriousness of the damage which is being inflicted. However, the incidences of environmental damage to the oceans, ocean-life and the seabed are stark and overwhelming. Our collective failure to address - or even stem - the myriad of serious problems is a very deep concern.
What threats do we face? Are our laws adequate to address these threats? Is enforcement adequate? If the laws and enforcement are not adequate, how should they be strengthened?
