Abstract

Oceans cover 70% of Earth, but the impact of humans on the world’s seas and oceans is boundless. Boundless in the sense that human impacts begin on the land at the headwaters of every creek, stream, and river flowing to the sea and extend without interruption along and across every coast and estuary to the most remote and deepest parts of the oceans. Human impacts are carried with waters flowing to the sea, in the air blowing across continents, and in every vessel, regardless of size or number of occupants, that ventures out from the land. No ocean escapes the impact of humanity and nowhere at sea is there any longer wilderness.
