International network for Scientific investigation of deep-sea ecosystems

Welcome to INDEEP
Historically deep-sea habitats were examined in isolation but it has become increasingly apparent that we must consider the largest biome on Earth in its entirety. The aim of the International Network for Scientific Investigations of Deep-Sea Ecosystems (INDEEP) is to develop and synthesise our understanding of deep-sea global biodiversity and functioning and provide a framework to bridge the gap between scientific results and society to aid in the formation of sustainable management strategies. INDEEP aims to bring together and help coordinate research efforts from across the globe through 5 working groups. The membership of each working group is open and envisioned to evolve and change in response to ongoing research activities (coordinated by a nominated lead).
