Ocean resources

The marine environment provides us with a lot of resources and services - some which we use everyday, like oil, gas and fish, and some which we don't really think about in everyday life, like climate regulation and waste management.  The first group can be called "provisioning services", and the second "supporting and regulating services".  Click on different resources and services in the lists below to find out more about how we use them.
