This week’s Round-Up features new research on regional differences in Clarion-Clipperton Zone fauna, plastic pollution in deep-sea trenches, monitoring of ecological recovery, and the rate of ocean species discovery. We’re also sharing updates on negotiations at the International Seabed Authority and a job opening for a Marine Evidence Manager to share environmental knowledge on deep-sea mining with the government of the United Kingdom. Finally, scroll to the end to read about the work of Dr María Emilia Bravo, who recently became the first person from Argentina to dive aboard the submersible Alvin.
