The Greatest Ocean Treasures Ever Found Infographic
As long as there has been recorded history, shipping has been an important part of it.
They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.
The pervasiveness of shipping is undeniable.
It is not only ancient Psalms in the Torah or Old Testament of the Bible that speak of ships and shipping, you can go all the way back to the book of Genesis and read the story of Noah, who ships his family and all the world’s animals onboard a giant ship he constructs (the world’s first megaship?). Of course, the epic poetry of Homer is overflowing with shipping. And nearly everything you buy at the store today either made its way across water in a ship or parts or materials to make it did.
But as long as there has been shipping, especially ocean shipping, there has been danger.
The leviathan warned of in ancient texts, Paul’s shipwreck recorded in the New Testament’s book of Acts, the great whale Porphyrius ramming ships in the Mediterranean during the time of the Byzantine Empire, Odysseus’ entire perilous journey at sea in Homer’s The Odyssey, the Titanic’s sinking, last year’s loss of the El Faro in Hurricane Joaquin, and even the megaship CSCL Indian Ocean running aground at the beginning of this month…
The list could go on and on of examples to remind us of the dangers of ocean shipping.
In fact, according to an infographic from The Water Filter Men, “It is said that there may be as many as three million shipwrecks scattered across the ocean floor.”
Yeah, that’s about three million reasons to get cargo insurance on ocean shipping.
In today’s blog, we share The Water Filter Men’s infographic with you. All those shipwrecks over the years have left quite the bounty of treasures at the bottom of the seas and oceans.
