DOSI Deep-Sea Round-Up
New research in this week’s Deep-Sea Round-Up is putting the spotlight on the smaller members of the deep-sea community. Articles this week cover topics including plankton in oligotrophic seas, epibiotic squat lobster symbiotes, microbes in deep-sea sediment, and more. Publications are also advocating for mesophotic reef monitoring and protection of the Salas y Gómez and Nazca Ridges, and don’t miss the piece on fish and squid that turned up somewhere remarkably unexpected.
In deep-sea mining, we link to a recording of an ISA webinar from this week explaining progress on the rules for equitable benefit sharing. Then it’s on to upcoming events, which include Ocean Sciences Meeting activities and a speaker on indigenous inclusion in the ocean sector.
Among the new opportunities this week are a postdoctoral position at Yale, a social science lead position with MASTS, and a consultancy on connections between environmental interests and deep-sea mining rules. Finally, dive to the bottom of the Round-Up for a new video from Natural World Facts explaining deep-sea swarms and clusters.
