Australia’s marine resources in a warm, acid ocean

One of the distinguishing features of our planet is the presence of an ocean that covers 71% of its surface. This vast ocean nurtured life’s beginnings and continues to support the biosphere and ultimately humanity. Approximately a quarter of the world’s population lives along coastlines where people extract food, building materials, energy, cultural significance and income (Seto and Shepherd, 2009).
