Since human beings became the leader of the earth, they have been at the top of the food chain. In fact, human beings are just the king on land, and they are very weak in the ocean. The ocean is a mysterious world. There is no sunshine all the year round, which makes many creatures have to change their body functions and become more fierce in order to survive. Since the improvement of science and technology, more and more marine equipment have emerged, and human beings have more opportunities to understand the marine world.
