Abstract150 years ago, Jules Verne formulated a vision for technological advances propelling ocean exploration and exploitation of resources within the carrying capacities of marine ecosystems, but he also projected the pathway leading to today's overexploitation of resources. We build on the novel's prophecies to consider steps conducive to a sustainable ocean economy.
