The oceans need joined up political will, they need large scale fixed Marine Conservation Zones, and smaller transient ones for fishing. The survival of humanity depends on mankind having a Symbiotic relationship with nature and our environment, on land, and at sea - this years Rio+20 summit may be the last opportunity to effect timely and effective agreements and initiatives for the future sustainability of planet earth - political leaders have to look beyond profit and loss to reach consensus, and agree to a more balanced and shared future.
