Dear Professor Chung,

Thank you for your kind suggestion. According to our investigation, we are told that there is no definite baseline for nodule collector by now. However, experts of COMRA do suggest that we must reduce the disturbance of mining activity as much as we can with the help of current technology. From the perspective of ecological preservation, the baseline is that no ocean species should be seriously reduced during the process of mining.

For the second question, we are sorry that we are not sure about the answer.
