One gets the feeling that the decision to frame the title of The Death of the oceans? as a matter may have been taken in the last minute in order to discourage immediate despair by the viewer.

If the program itself communicated anything, however, is that the oceans dead are much stronger possibility that the question mark means.

The threat, in fact, seems to be immediate and almost irreversible. One scientist said: We run the risk of loss of species before it has even been introduced to them. The sea life is very fragile, said another. Not for one minute think that we can not screw up much worse than it is today.

No sound down, it looked like another documentary lush and luxurious sea creatures led by David Attenborough, looking weird humpback whale squid and shining in the sun.

But the soundtrack was mostly a long list of warnings raw and grim statistics: fish in our seas clean for the year 2050, all corals to die because of ocean acidification unless the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere is drastically reduced, all conversations eventually whale drowned our shipping increasingly noisy.

Before we can take the most basic measures to save our oceans, we need something we’ve never come close to having: a baseline study of what is in the sea. That’s where people diligently Census of Marine Life comes in.
They are carefully measuring all aspects of ocean life, although it is difficult to see that they do in present circumstances no one would pretend that bit faster. Dr. Julian Caley and his team spend months examining the creatures in a cubic foot coral reef in Australia.

The worm only specialist found 22 new species. Records of parasites of fish type, on average, one new species a day, 6,000 species have been discovered previously unknown through the census of all so far.
