Competing Interests

Co-author Peter Etnoyer and PLoS editor Dr. Craig McClain were co-editors at the Deep-Sea News blog 2005–2009. Dr. McClain has recused himself from editorial review of the Saba Bank Biodiversity Assessment volume to avoid conflict of interest. There are no conflicts of interest for the first and corresponding author, Sheila A. McKenna.
