Youtube science channels about the Ocean

But among the broad variety of science channels it seems like the YouTube community forgot about that thing that covers 71% of our planet.

The ocean!

The ocean has been described as huge, largely unknown, incredibly beautiful and powerful. However, most people do not realize how important the ocean is for our own very existence. Just to put things into perspective, consider that the oxygen in every other breath you take comes from the ocean. Given that the ocean is an inexhaustible source of amazing stories it seems incredible that no marine science themed YouTube channels exist! Or we should say existed, because there is one marine scientist that decided to do something about this.
