Happy Valentine’s Day week! Today’s Round-Up has plenty of entries we think you’ll love. New publications include papers on new depth records for ocean animals, deep-sea cucumber diets, and a DOSI policy brief on connecting climate change and BBNJ policy. Deep-sea mining is also making headlines this week in response to a new paper about its potential impact on whales.

If you’re looking for a deep-ocean job, The Deep-Sea Research Centre in Australia has just opened applications for multiple positions.  Finally, stop by the Wanted section to learn about a fundraiser for low-cost deep-sea filming in the Philippines.
