Welcome to this week’s Round-Up! Today’s issue introduces Bernadette Butfield, our new Digital Officer. We’re also featuring research on carbon transport, deep-sea polychaetes, and the evolution of ultra-black camouflage in deep-sea eels. Next Thursday is the deadline for Deep-Sea Life submissions, so make sure to share all your important news from the last six months. Finally, scroll to the end to relax with a new video on the ocean twilight zone from Natural World Facts and Schmidt Ocean Institute.
