As we begin to see the monetary value of the oceans, the numbers are eye opening.
Thanks to a very easy-to-read Infographic from the Global Partnership for the Oceans, we have some more ocean numbers.
Lots of good stuff here but what caught my eye was:
- Eco tourism related to reefs is worth $9 billion
- $2.2 trillion lost to fisheries mismanagement
- 350 million jobs linked to oceans globally
