In its position paper on bulk deep-sea mining, WWF calls for a moratorium on applications for bulk extraction of the seabed for minerals such as phosphate until sensitive offshore marine ecosystems along our coastline are adequately protected, more information is available, and a proactive and coordinated response between the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR), Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) and the Department of Agricultural, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) is underway.
