Protecting our deep-sea potential

Category: Beneficial partnerships

Deep-sea sponges, many of which are new to science, are home to weird and wonderful bacteria that could be the solution to one of the greatest threats to human health - antimicrobial resistance, when antibiotics no longer work. The One Ocean Hub, led by University of Strathclyde, brings together deep-sea marine researchers, law and social science experts to ensure deep-sea sponges are recognized for their essential contributions to human wellbeing and are better protected.
