The human relationship with the ocean is diverse and complex. It is built on values that are often non-monetary, and which contribute to non-material dimensions of well-being. These values are essential to broader human flourishing. They include contributions to cultural and social and legal identity; a sense of place; occupational pride and self-respect; spirituality; mental and bodily health; and human security. The plurality of these values and interests matters to individuals and societies and could be more strongly represented in high-level ocean policy discussions.
