Anything other contribution: 
I find it often difficult to compare results of different studies even from the same area. Since exploring the deep-sea has to be a collective grinding effort, it would be useful to emphasise more on making results comparable to what other have found so we it become easier build up on previous results

Primary Expertise:

3 priority science questions that need to be answered: 
- Establish baselines of ecosystems health and agree on ways to measure deviation from it - Harmonise sampling protocols - More work on taxonomy, species description and identification keys (on specimen and on images)
