Way back in 2019, in honor of World Oceans Day, XPrize supported 18 writers and 18 artists from all 7 continents (well, if you count writing a story while on an Antarctic expedition as being "from" there -- I suppose it's the closest most of us will ever get) to create Current Futures: A Sci-Fi Ocean Anthology. The stories wander -- there's a surface-world of artificial storm-resistant islands; communicative cetaceans of the abyss; growing your island home back from the ravages of storm surge and rising seas; mental hitchhiking with pinnipeds; self-replicating cleanup technology that 3D prints copies of itself from the oil it harvests; and perfect deep-sea view to entertain your dead holographic relatives. Each one's its own truly weird dive to a new and strange sea-changed submersible realm.

I just drove into this and read three of the stories-wonderful. Shared with my sci fi book group. Thank you for the find.
