I would say that sea is one of the greatest creatures that God ever create. It offers various beautiful fishes, colourful corals, and sea grass which are useful in many ways. For examples: the fishes could be put into the aquarium and be a beautification of places or could be eaten as a food. The sea itself provides salt from its water. They are also a perfect combination to witness by divers. I also might think that the sea is mysterious in some way, because since nobody ever dives onto the ground so that we can’t be sure what else in there other than common types of animals we already know. Thus, with the finding of new types of shark, exotic “flasher” fish and corals, it is wise of us to be more concern yet care about under the sea life, especially for them who used dynamite (or any other kind of things that could bust it) for fishing. And for scientists, it could be their motivation to continue searching for more and more new type of fishes or any other living things in the sea.
