Deep-sea bed, being Earth’s final frontier and exploring its mineral contents, microbial fauna and flora with advanced extraction tools could be anew summon task in the biological research. Deep-sea minerals which sustain extreme temperature, pressure for thousands of years in the sea belt has potential application in information technology, satellite designing, biomedical research and advance nanotechnology. The nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals and bio toxins developed from isolated microbial fauna and the ecosystem diversity under deep-sea environment could have important biological functions. The refined or balanced deep-sea water contains minerals with many health benefits. The purposes of the review focus on understanding the importance of deep-sea mining and exploring its flora, fauna, and ecosystem diversity at physiological, metaphysical, biochemical, and molecular level.

Keywords: Deep-sea, Polymagnetic crust, Ecosystem diversity, Ferromanganese crust, Mining.
