This beautiful “spiny jelly” (Halicreas minimum) was observed during exploration of the water column at a depth of 1,200 meters during the third dive of the second Voyage to the Ridge 2022 expedition. Image courtesy of NOAA Ocean Exploration. Deep-sea photos shared through DOSI can be found on our Flickr page. You can share your own amazing images through the round-up here.

Welcome to the Round-Up! First on our list today is the completed text for an international treaty on Biodiversity Beyond National Jurisdiction, which is available now. Then we share this week’s papers, including a brand new piece by DOSI members on the deep-sea impacts of climate interventions. You can read the press release for that paper here.

Deep-sea mining news this week has been focused on an open letter from the IUCN Director General to the International Seabed Authority. There are also some key events to consider signing up for, including the Deep Ocean Observing Strategy’s Annual Meeting in May. Enjoy!
