The ocean, covering over 70% of our planet’s surface, is a vast and enigmatic expanse that has fascinated humans for centuries. Its depth, teeming with unexplored realms and mysterious creatures, continues to intrigue scientists and adventurers alike. But just how deep is the ocean? Let’s dive into the fascinating details.

Researchers estimate that the ocean may be home to 700,000 marine species. 91 percent of ocean species have yet to be classified, and more than 80 percent of our ocean is unmapped, unobserved, and unexplored.
