Publisher's Summary

Using a question-and-answer format, this entertaining book addresses over 100 general interest questions about the sea, sea life, seabirds, and man's relationship with the sea. Why is the sea salty? Does anything eat jellyfish? Why do whales sing? How do flying fish fly? Who owns the oceans? Inspired by questions raised while the author was a guest lecturer on cruise ships, this fascinating and informative book is a lighthearted, surprising, and entertaining listen for anyone interested in the sea in its many forms. It's an ideal book to dip into for anyone interested in the oceans and the teeming life above and below them.
