Sunken Eldorado: The New Underwater Goldrush

Described Video:
Millions of shipwrecks litter the ocean flow. Over 3,000 of them sank with cargoes of precious metals onboard. With today's technology, this treasure is now in reach. Companies like Odyssey Marine Exploration, listed on the NASDAQ, invest up to $3 million a month looking for these wrecks. But finding them is just the beginning. Then begins the legal and political battles : who does the treasure belong to? The nations whose territorial waters host the wreck? The owners of the sunken ship? The countries originally plundered? Or humanity itself?
