Description:
Throughout the course of history, humans have been drawn to coastal areas to enjoy the bounty of the sea. As much as 40 per cent of the world’s population now lives within 100 kilometres of the shoreline (Martínez, et al., 2007) and this population continues to grow – increasing our reliance and impact on the ocean and coast. Two thirds of the world’s megacities are on the coast.
