VentBase is a forum where academic, commercial, government and other stakeholders can develop a consensus on the best way to manage the mining of seafloor massive sulfide (SMS) deposits.
VentBase will produce best-practice documents to inform stakeholders, and highlight state of the art science to underpin effective management.
2014 Workshop | 2 - 4 April 2014
NIWA | Wellington | New Zealand
Identifying practical spatial management and mitigation strategies for the mining of SMS deposits.
The workshop will be an opportunity to further the development of 'primer-type' documents on other topics (e.g. a primer for conservation genetics at deep-sea SMS deposits).
