3 priority science questions that need to be answered: 
1) What are the environmental impacts of deep-sea mining? (To be determined by test studies) 2) Can deep-sea communities recover from mining impacts, and if so, on what time scales? (To be assessed through long-term monitoring programs) 3) Do mineral deposits host 'unique' communities that could be severely impacted by mining activities? (Detailed deposit and non-deposit community structure studies required)
