If you would like to showcase any images from your own work, you can find submission guidelines on our website.

Welcome back to the latest from the deep! This week’s Round-Up starts off with a major publication: A 10-chapter atlas of deep-sea ecosystems in the Mediterranean Sea from the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). There are also some fascinating new papers on plastic pollution, gill parasites, and the trails left by benthic creatures shuffling through the sediment.

There are also three new publications on deep-sea mining, from a study of plume dispersion to an ISA technical study. Meanwhile, the news section includes articles on an organism with “glowing cheeto guts” and the “squabble” over naming ocean microbes.

One of the events in this issue is a webinar happening just a few hours after the Round-Up’s release, so act fast to register! Make sure to come back afterward, though, to browse new job and internship opportunities at the National Oceanography Centre of the UK, the Smithsonian, and The Ocean Foundation. Enjoy!
