It therefore continues to be a huge resource with unknown marvels and suggestions as to how life on earth evolved and could survive better in the future. It equally supports life for most creatures on the planet, including ourselves and is used as a means of transporting most of the every day items we take for granted.
The Island's STEM sector supports activities both above and under the sea. The Isle of Man is a prime base for this activity as it is the only whole nation on the planet to have been awarded the Unesco Biosphere status https://www.biosphere.im/
Ships (through valves, pressure regulators and anchors), submarines, both military and research, (through structural and control components) and oil/gas exploration (through valves and pressure regulators).
