“Ocean literacy is an understanding of the ocean’s influence on you — and your influence on the ocean. An ocean-literate person understands the essential principles and fundamental concepts about the functioning of the ocean; can communicate about the ocean in a meaningful way; and is able to make informed and responsible decisions regarding the ocean and its resources.”

The 7 Essential Principles of Ocean Literacy are:

  1. The Earth has one big ocean with many features
  2. The ocean and life in the ocean shape the features of the Earth
  3. The ocean is a major influence on weather and climate
  4. The ocean makes the Earth habitable
  5. The ocean supports a great diversity of life and ecosystems
  6. The ocean and humans are inextricably interconnected
  7. The ocean is largely unexplored
