World's largest marine area protected in historic agreement

Posted by Steve - on 10/11/2016 to News
Very good news for the world’s oceans. The last pristine ocean ecosystem remaining on earth is now protected thanks to a landmark agreement hammered out by 24 nations and the European Union. Over 600,000 square miles of the Ross Sea in Antarctica will be off-lmits to commercial fishing and hunting of marine life.

The Ross Sea is a deep bay in the Antarctic Ocean, which produces about three-quarters of the nutrients that sustain life in the rest of the world’s oceans, upwelled by currents that carry them around the world.
