Is there more life on sea or more life on land?

    More life in the seas. The earth surface is app. two thirds water and it has life in it from the surface to the very bottom. Plankton alone is more prevalent in the seas than all the life on all the surfaces of the land.

    There is more life on land. We need oxygen and food and sweet water for living. It is possible on land only not sea.

    That depends on how you define "more life". Biomass, number of individuals, or richness (itself an indefinite metric)? And where and how are you measuring? Tropical lagoons probably have the greatest amount, however you measure, followed by estuaries. In contrast, once you get offshore or below the depth to which light can penetrate, you are hard-put to find any life at all. Relatively little of "the sea" has much life in it.

    Did you ever wonder why temperate ocean water is grey-green and tropical ocean water is blue? There is a lot more life in the temperate oceans than in the tropics.

    One needs to define what one means by more life.  Anyway, since the  Oceans cover more area and the depth is greater overall they have more biomass than the land.  Much of the ocean is relatively empty, so a comparison per area may give a different result.

    Well since the Earth is 70 percent water 10 percent desert 20 percent green i would say that there is more life in the Water (the upper part of water has the most life)

    There is more life at sea

    With all of the life undiscovered
