g) Méjean highland has revealed a higher density than other massive sponge dives
on rocky areas. The top of the high-seas presents an important bioturbation, a
sponge removal already observed in 2008, of the genus Leiodermatium, which
should make it possible to differentiate Leiodermatium pfeifferae and L. lynceus
(Maia et al., 2017).
Discussion
The knowledge obtained on deep Mediterranean ecosystems from the RAMOGE deepsea exploration campaigns carried out in 2015 and 2018, illustrates the rich
collaboration between the scientific teams of the three countries (Italy, Monaco and
France). Monitoring the health status of these deep environments is fundamental to
assessing the effects of human activities and thus constitutes an essential element of
adaptive management, namely the ability to adjust, refine human activities and thus
optimize their preservation effectiveness
The RAMOGE experiment, with the collaboration of the scientific components of the
three signatory countries of the Agreement, aims to be an example of international
collaboration for the definition of standardized activities for study and monitoring of
deep habitats. The exchanges between the crews aboard the ship were rich and revealed
the importance of working together. It is clear that the three countries share, at different
intensities, the same environmental issues.
