  • The supply of fish from the oceans along with seas has been the greatest protein supply for human beings, and each time the people breathe, half of the oxygen taken by the people comes from the Ocean, so human beings require it to survive.

The vitality of World Oceans Day

  • The massive surface area of the oceans allows the solar energy to evaporate vast amounts of water that then condenses and falls as rain on the land.
  • Such huge oceans have been a practical element of the carbon cycle and are much more significant in their function because of carbon sinks.
  •  Covering seventy percent of the surface of the Earth, the Ocean transports heat from the equator towards the poles, modifying the weather patterns and the climate. The blue Ocean absorbs fifty times more carbon dioxide than the atmosphere and produces over half of the entire world’s oxygen.
