  • Sea

    The sea covers 71% of the earth’s surface. From shallow seashores to dizzyingly vast deep-seas. With boundless variations of marine plants and animals. Living in complex ecosystems. Where population sizes and biomass changes through the year and with time. It is said that we humans hold more knowledge about our own solar system than on the oceans of planet Earth. At SALT we have little experience with the solar system, but we uphold vast knowledge about the sea. We offer this knowledge at your disposal.
