An additional proteomic analysis of the deep-sea
mussel gill reveals nutritional and energetic dependency of the mussel on its methanotrophic symbionts.
Scientific data for the other deep-sea
stocks is limited and precautionary cuts are proposed.
MEPs added a review clause asking the Commission to assess after four years the impact on vulnerable deep-sea
species and marine ecosystems of bottom trawls and gillnets used for deep-sea
fishing, with the possibility of proposing a general phase-out of bottom trawling thereafter.
fish products are typically consumed in Europe, the United States and Japan.
By studying the new vents, the team hope to understand more about the distribution and evolution of life in the deep ocean, the role that deep-sea
vents play in controlling the chemistry of the oceans, and the diversity of microbes that thrive in different conditions beneath the waves.
As ACF's healthy oceans campaigner Chris Smyth explains, there is a lack of preparedness and contingency infrastructure for disasters like that in the Gulf of Mexico, despite an increase in deep-sea
Those flashes showed that for the first time, the scientists were actually "talking" to deep-sea
creatures using light.
Scientists also theorize that some deep-sea
species use bioluminescence for reproduction or to escape predators.
Worms from deep-sea
vents actually prefer water at temperatures near the upper limits of what animals are known to survive.
The inflation waters appeared calm for inland waterways and deep-sea
shipping in November, but looks can be deceiving.
expeditions of Otis Barton and William Beebe revolutionized undersea concepts and exploration--and at the height of the Depression years, when money was tight.
Oil companies are giving scientists studying the deep-sea
environment a helping hand as part of a new UK based multinational project Founded by the Southampton Oceanography Centre, Project Serpent has already used cutting-edge commercial technology provided by BP and subcontractors Subsea 7 and Transocean to observe the behaviour of deep-sea
animals in the North Atlantic, North Sea, Gulf of Mexico and off West Africa.
