Instead of preserving this very important resource, man pours an entire truck loaded with plastic into the sea every minute. For an exorbitant total of 12 million tons in a single calendar year. Continuing at this rate it has been calculated that by 2050 there may be more plastic than fish in our oceans. Our species dominates the emerged lands. But above and below the liquid surface that covers three quarters of the planet we are still guests. The importance of the oceans reserves an invaluable biodiversity by regulating and determining the entire climate of the planet. The micro-organisms inhabited supply more than half of the oxygen present in the atmosphere. Fish products are the main source of protein for about 3 billion people. For these reasons, what threatens the oceans also threatens us.
