Many works of modern fantasy or speculative fiction are set in a [[SingleBiomePlanet mostly watery world]] (or a mostly watery part of the world where the rest isn't of much matter) with distant islands connected by trade routes, ships sailing back and forth, and mighty colonial nations vying for rulership of the oceans and seas. Also often called Pirate Punk, as the setting naturally lends itself (but is by no means obliged) to have many {{Pirate}}s and buccaneers, whether they're wielding cutlasses on sailing ships or the aquatic equivalent of HumongousMecha. May contain OrganicTechnology, and have a large focus on what happens under the waves as well as over. Fantastic elements based on old sailors' superstitions (mermaids, [[GhostShip abandoned derelicts]] [[FlyingDutchman that often aren't so abandoned after all]], [[KrakenAndLeviathan giant sea monsters]]) also make a frequent appearance.

This may also be a type of AfterTheEnd setting, if the writers are trying to teach AnAesop about [[GreenAesop global-warming]]. Or they just thought it would be cool to show a world where our mostly land-based culture and technology ends up [[ScavengerWorld being adapted for an existence on the ocean]].
