Centenarian coelacanths & legendary Lily
This week we share an interview with ocean lawyer Hannah Lily. A member of DOSI’s Advisory Board, Hannah has been involved with DOSI from the start, and is an active member of the Minerals working group, which is immensely useful given her wealth of experience in seabed mining. The news-grabbing paper of the week reveals that the coelacanth, a deep-sea fish with low oxygen-extraction capacity, slow metabolism, ovoviviparity, and low fecundity, is indeed long-living and slow growing, making it vulnerable to environmental change and anthropogenic stresses. The media continues to cover the deep-seabed mining debate, and DOSI’s Diva Amon features in two key articles on the subject, in The Guardian and Bloomberg.
Enjoy this week’s Round-Up and, chin up, it’s nearly the weekend!
