Welcome back to the Deep-Sea Round-Up! In this issue, we feature research on the earliest evidence of deep-sea vertebrates, remote manipulation of deep-sea ROVs, and the benthic animals of the central and south Atlantic. There’s also an opportunity to participate virtually in the Deep Ocean Collective Solution Accelerator event next month and job openings with both the UK Natural History Museum and the Joint Nature Conservation Committee. Finally, scroll to the end for a chance to use your deep-ocean research and media to support educational programs.
