When we look at this blue planet that we live on, it is clear that the Oceans occupy most of its surface. Even though human civilization is in its best form of advancement, we still have not discovered even a proper fraction of it. The biggest mammal in the world lives in the ocean, many animals, aquatic plants, lost civilizations and many more secrets of the world lie under the surface of the water, waiting to be discovered.
