What is our priority to explore: space or oceans?

With our land resources running off, there might be only two places left to look in: Space and Oceans. Which one of them do you think is our number one priority for the time being?

    World is the most suitable among the planets and only one.

    If we rise a question : For what will we explore?
    We can come up with the following answers:
    For food, dwelling place, natural resource, Knowledge:
    I believe ocean can give us everything for what we are to explore where space is far from it.
