Summary
The contributors to Opposing Viewpoints: Endangered Oceans debate potential shifts in attitude, policy, and action, which are necessary and possible to counteract the multitude of interconnected threats facing the ocean. Some of these threats, such as overfishing, have been subject of much research and discussion, while dangers such as ocean acidification are not yet fully understood and remain obscure to the general public. Four chapters address four pertinent questions that look at the dangers facing our oceans from various angles: What Threatens the World's Oceans?, What Ocean Policies Are Best?, What Strategies Would Best Promote Sustainable Fishing?, and What Impact Do Human Activities Have On Marine Mammals?
