The Ocean State Report 5

According to the recently released “The Ocean State Report 5”, the global ocean, which covers 71 per cent of the Earth’s surface, regulates the global climate and supports life, is witnessing drastic changes from natural variations, over-exploitation and anthropogenic activities. These changes have triggered the annual sea level rise by 3.1 millimeters between January 1993 to May 2020.
According to the report, the warming of the global ocean has forced many marine species to migrate towards cooler waters, resulting in the introduction of non-native and invasive species in different marine ecosystems.
