Coastal seas count for 7% of our ocean, yet they are responsible for 95% of the world's marine production - these are our planet's fishing grounds. Despite their importance to humanity, few are protected. Yet wherever effective protection exists, life bounces back in huge abundance. From fearsome sharks to lowly urchins, 90 percent of marine creatures live in coastal waters. Protecting these habitats is a battle humanity must win. (45mins)
