Diwakar, K and Muniyandi, K (2000) Truth of the Ocean. In: Souvenir 2000. Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute, Mandapam, pp. 84-87.
It is not too much to say that water is life. Our planet is the only one in our entire solar system which has been blessed with water and ocean. You may recall that our earth is often called' a watery planet' as 71% of the earth's surface is covered by the oceans with all the adventures and challenges they provide both to man and science. Today, parts of the world ocean are intensively exploited for recreation, military purposes, commercial shipping, fishing, extraction of gases, oil and other mineral resources.
