editors note Saving the Ocean Planet We live on a water world, the only such
planet in the solar system. From time immemorial, we have been fed by the sea,

percent of Earth's actual living space. ... I hope you enjoy this Ocean Planet issue
and that it helps give you new insights into our planet's most precious resource.
