that deep-sea mining operations with its ambient noise, and further deep-sea exploration with its various seismic profiling methods, might cause “harm” to the whales. If such proves to be the case, the mining and/or the exploration operation would be in violation of the Fauna (Protection and Control) Act.

Deep-sea mining is an emergent industry targeting three main resources of interest: manganese nodules, seafloor massive sulfides and cobalt crusts. Carry out exploration and mining In this case, impacts to vulnerable, large marine fauna derived from changes in the chemical composition of the water, sediment plumes, and submarine noise

Deep-sea mining IUCN

• Deep-sea mining is the process of retrieving mineral deposits from the deep sea the area of the ocean below 200 m. • Depleting terrestrial deposits and rising demand for metals are stimulating interest in the deep sea, with commercial mining imminent. • The scraping of the sea floor and pollution from mining processes can wipe out entire species many yet to be discovered.
