The Deep-Sea Biology Society (DSBS) was organised by scientists who recognised a need for an organisation to meet the requirements of deep-sea biologists. The mission statement of the DSBS is as follows:
The advancement of education for the public benefit in deep-sea biology by the operation of a scientific society to promote the exchange of information, the promotion and dissemination of deep-sea research, to foster the next generation of deep-sea biologists and to promote demographic diversity in the study of deep-sea biology.
