The marine and coastal environment also constitutes a key resource for the important global tourism industry and expanding domain of nature-based tourism. The seabed currently provides 32% of the global supply of hydrocarbons with exploration expanding. Advancing technologies are opening new frontiers of marine resource development from bio- prospecting to the mining of seabed mineral resources. The sea also offers vast potential for renewable “blue energy” production from wind, wave, tidal, thermal and biomass sources. Please click here for more…
