Seminar: Deep Sea Marine Biodiversity in PNG

Findings of a collaborative research between UPNG and the National Museum of Natural History in Paris, France, which proves that the deep-sea of PNG has a high biodiversity of mega faunal communities including fish, crustaceans, molluscs, echinoderms, cold water corals and other marine animals, contrary to claims that there is not much biodiversity at great depths.


Deep-water biodiversity will be discussed in view of mining activity, bio-prospecting and carbon storage.

  1. Fabulous seminar. Hope I could also have attended the seminar. I am very fond of knowing things which are not related to my day to day life. Ans sea is one of my most precious topic. Any ways lets hope for the best for the next time.
