It's not all coral and tropical paradise in the ocean. Many areas boost less life than the centre of the Gobi desert. However, CO2 instead of water is the limiting factor in the marine environment. One part iron, one part CO2 and the algae is boosting. A number of American companies is now going to commercially exploit this by eco-engineering the ocean; e.g. dumping 100 tonnes of iron sulphide in it. It's falsely promoted as a potential solution for climate change.
Now I should be writing an entire article here... but unfortunately I have no time today. Instead here is a Dutch article I wrote some two months ago. I'll see if I can translate it some time during the weekend.
Dank u zeer :)
