Unregulated research poses a serious threat to some unique marine environments. 
Retributivist accounts of punishment maintain that it is right to punish wrongdoers, even if the punishment has no future benefits. Research in experimental economics indicates that people are
Man and the Last Great Wilderness: Human Impact on the Deep Sea
The analysis shows how the most significant anthropogenic activities that affect the deep sea have evolved from mainly disposal to exploitation and predicts that from now and into the future, increases in atmospheric CO2 and facets of climate change will have the most impact on deep-sea habitats and their fauna.
High seas marine protected areas : concept and discourse analysis
The notion of creating marine protected areas (MPAs) in the high seas has been hailed as “an idea whose time has come”, and advocates are calling for them to be part of a global representative system
Benthic biology time-series in the deep sea: indicators of change
The responsiveness of benthic biological communities to climatic drivers and shifts makes them powerful indicators of biogeochemical and other environmental change in the oceans. In addition, benthic
Assessment of decadal-scale ecological change at a deep Mid-Atlantic hydrothermal vent and reproductive time-series in the shrimp Rimicaris exoculata
There is a constancy in the identity, distribution and abundance of dominant species at TAG that contrasts with other vent sites where quantitative time-series have been established, and there is no evidence of a decline in the extent of shrimp aggregations at the central black smokers of TAG.
Concern over deep-sea reefs is widespread
Biologists do not pose a threat to deep-sea vents
India has an opportunity to establish a regional warning centre for the Indian ocean, thus ending its self-imposed isolation in sharing seismic data, and has the communications infrastructure and the scientific talent to serve its citizens and the international community.

Marine conservation: Sink or swim
Can an ambitious plan to protect unique marine habitats in the open ocean turn the tide of destruction? Henry Nicholls plunges in.
Are vent shrimps blinded by science?
The exploration of deep-sea hydrothermal vents has depended on the use of manned submersibles, which are invariably equipped with high-intensity floodlights. But the eyes of many deep-sea
