Approximately 2 million square kilometres of Pacific Ocean Floor is currently under exploration leasehold for deep seabed mining to private and national government companies within both territorial and international waters.

For the past decade, the Deep Sea Mining Campaign (DSMC) has had a consistent focus on this emerging and very real threat to the world’s oceans. Our unique approach combines research and evidence-based advocacy, finance advocacy and collaborating with frontline communities, and regional and international partners and networks.
