What ocean has claimed the most lives?

    Because the Atlantic Ocean is the most important ocean for commercial traffic, it would be reasonable to assume that the Atlantic Ocean has claimed the most lives due to shipwrecks. One should assume that shipwrecks have an equal chance of occurring in any ocean and therefore the most shipwrecks will happen in the ocean with the most traffic.

    I would have to agree with sfcharles. If you also add to this the number of people who have died in the Atlantic as part of the slave trade and piracy exploits–not to metion the sheer magnitude of the ocean itself.
