We thank the captain of the R/V Pourquoi pas? and its crew for their steadfast collaboration in the success of the cruise. We are particularly grateful to François Lallier, chief scientist who greatly supported our sampling program. We are also grateful to the ROV Victor6000 pilots for their patience and constant support.
