Question of Alexandre (07.10.2015): How much gold do you think there is at bottom of the sea at this time from acts of piracy or boats sunken for other than criminal reasons? Do you
think it is possible to bring all that gold to the surface? A:
The seas are the largest warehouses of treasures. More than 40% of Spanish galleons have never returned to their country. A portion was not lost and went on to join the coffers of the King of France or the Queen of England, or the pirates. But much became the victim of the ocean.
