Their distance from land, and great depth, creates major sampling problems in terms of technical and financial logistics. Even with modern winches, it requires over 4 h to take a simple spade box core in 5000 m of water. An abyssal trawl usually takes at least 8–12 h and the majority of ROVs are unable to reach such depths. Nevertheless, long-term monitoring has been carried out in two principal abyssal settings. The Porcupine Abyssal Plain (PAP) is centred in the north-east Atlantic and has been the focus of mainly British oceanographic cruises.

2003), was discovered $300 m northwest of the last known position of the Rose Garden site. 21 N: This vent field is characterised by tall sulphide mounds and is dominated by large fields of clams (Van Dover, 2000). The site was visited in 1979, 1982, and 1990. Beds of dead clams indicate that the segment has been active for at least 300 years based on the dissolution rates of the clam shells (Kennish and Lutz, 1999). , 1985). 13 N: This complex set of seven active vent sites, dominated by tubeworms, mussels, and alvinellid polychaetes, was visited in 1982, 1984, 1987, 1991, 1992, 1996, and 2002.

However, the echinoderms exhibited much larger abundance variations (up to three orders of magnitude) compared to a factor of two in the case of the macrofauna. Additionally, the megafauna had longer temporal lags (several months on average) in their apparent responses to the variable food supply. An analysis of the body-size distributions of the most abundant mobile megafauna suggested that increases in abundance were negatively correlated to decreases in the average body size in seven of the ten species (Ruhl, 2007).
