What I want to do with this site is provide a personal portal for all things related to our oceans and ocean conservancy. As an avid scuba diver, I've come to love the ocean and everything living in it. Regardless of one's political or economic leaning, a clean ocean benefits us all. So, I intend to use this site to explore the myirad of oceanic topics and perhaps discover how I can personally do my part to keep our oceans awesome. Perhaps a few others that stumble on might find it useful too.
This month's spotlight area: The Koster Sea Surrounding the Koster islands in the Oslo fjord off the south-west coast of Sweden, the Koster sea is dark, cold, and teaming with life.
The sea, the great unifier, is man's only hope. Now, as never before, the old phrase has a literal meaning: we are all in the same boat. -Jacques Cousteau
The Koster Sea
Koster Islands "The waters around Koster conceal many fauna and algae that are not present anywhere else in Swedish seas. One of Sweden’s two known coral reefs is here."
Next month, one of my favorite diving areas, the reefs of Roatan Warm, clear waters with lots of color and life. The caribbean sea surrounding Roatan, Honduras is perfect for divers of all levels. But these reefs, like many others around the world are in danger.
