This week’s Round-Up includes research on deep-sea coral reproduction, microplastics, and cold seep tubeworms. You can also read our Minerals Working Group’s report on DOSI’s role at the first part of this year’s International Seabed Authority meeting.

Key events coming up include a training workshop for underwater cameras (registration deadline April 14th!) and a seminar on mesophotic reefs in South Africa. Please note that the Deep-Sea Biological Society (DSBS) is also offering travel funding awards for the GEO BON Global Conference on Biodiversity and Monitoring this August. Finally, scroll to the end of this week’s Round-Up to read about how Schmidt Ocean Institute’s research is useful for exploring ocean worlds elsewhere in the solar system!
