As given by the book proposed title, the topic addressed, healing of the Ocean, starts by the containment of the pollution by physical defenses. The first two chapters describes the feedback on seven experiments made on the East Atlantic Ocean. The 1st chapter concerns semi-open sites and the second open environment directly linked to the Ocean. The discussion continues with the measurement of the toxicity coming from a Harbor Marina and affecting the biodiversity. The question addressed is to give a methodology to quantify biological contamination coming from Heavy metal releases into the environment. The chapter 4 gives the state of the art in the science of a mid-depth living fish species affected by the treatment of oil pollution by chemical dispersion. In a similar way, the chapter 5 addresses new explored and exploited ocean with extreme environments such as arctic and deep sea. Finally, the last chapter 6 is an analysis from a lawyer. A massive ocean contamination needs to be discussed at all time in a Court of Law.
