In this feature, we plunge into the impact of COVID-19 on the ocean, the dive industry, and the responses institutions are coming up with to cope in these unprecedented times. THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT With dramatic falls in pollution levels around the globe, the coronavirus pandemic has had a number of positive effects on the environment as millions across the world are placed under lockdown.
