Abstract/Summary

A corrigendum on Deep-Sea Mining With No Net Loss of Biodiversity—An Impossible Aim by Niner, H. J., Ardron, J. A., Escobar, E. G., Gianni, M., Jaeckel, A., Jones, D. O. B., et al. (2018). Front. Mar. Sci. 5:53. doi: 10.3389/fmars.2018.00053 The terms “offset” and “reef balls” appear in the reference given in our paper, “International Marine Mitigation Bank” (IMMB, 2017), but our referencing is not precise. The following clarifications better direct readers to discussions held in relation to compensation and offsetting for deep-sea mining. • Managing impacts on deep-sea biodiversity, paragraph three: “We also consider the recent suggestion that biodiversity offsetting could be employed in the context of deep-seabed mining (ISA, 2016).” • Offset misuse, paragraph two: “For example, it has been suggested that damage in the deep sea from mining (which will inevitably involve biodiversity loss) might be compensated or offset through an “International Marine Mitigation Bank” (ECO, 2016; ISA, 2016; Fish Reef Project, 2017), which deploys “reef balls”—concrete substrata—to promote coral-reef habitat and biodiversity in shallow-water ecosystems.” The authors state that these clarifications do not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. The original article has been updated.
