The risks and impacts of deep-seabed mining to marine

Determining the environmental risks and impacts of mineral extraction depends on the knowledge, information and data available. The deep sea remains our least explored and largest environment on the planet. A considerable level of knowledge will therefore be required to assess and manage sustainable exploitation of deep-sea resources.
