The ocean makes up 71% of the Earth’s surface. This is a common fun-fact that gets kicked around, conveying the importance of focusing more attention on our oceans. When much of the world’s news and sciences concentrate on the small swaths of land that make up our Earth, ocean related stories tend to be brushed into the categories of curiosities or myth.

In truth, the ocean continues to be a treasure trove for discovering new species, novel technological advancements and interesting tales. For the last five months my partner Samantha Wishnak and I have been seeking out these stories and collecting interviews on the subject of ocean science and technology. Being the ocean science wonks we are, we got excited about this project and wanted to share these awesome stories.
