The "Pristine Seas" project is setting up marine sanctuaries.
They believe that if a large fishing boat arrives, it could
decimate the ecosystem (by depleting the top predators) in 1
And, due to it's remote location, there's doubt anyone can
OK, so fish in
the open ocean need the short-supply of surface
areas. Sunken ships make great material for anchoring a
base of a food chain, & habitat.
Alas, forthwith, any trespass (tracked by satellite) into the
designated pristine areas? Our team will send you a radio
message in the top 10 languages to reverse course
immediately, or contribute to the ecosystem.
If they do not reverse course within 24 hours, our team will
release a cruise missile to hug them.
When the wreckage of their ship descends into the pristine
area, the life will embrace it, and grow & flourish even
Alas, this is not sustainable. After a few ships are sunk, the
international community will likely not be sending fishing
ships into the area anymore, and we'll lack additional
submerged surface area, and will make do with what we
||Unfortunately, while sunk ships are great bases for
reefs and fish habitat, the full loads of marine diesel
they carry are not.

before scuttling for reef type purposes.

solution to pollution is dilution, & the ocean is good

dispersed widely & diluted to background levels, but
the carcass of the ship creates lasting structure for
life to anchor.
