The last Biology Working Group update in the IR News was November 1999; since then the group has concentrated on two major topics: organizing a workshop on Management of Hydrothermal Vents, and planning of the 2nd International Symposium on Deep-Sea Hydrothermal Vent Biology.

An unusual event caught the attention of the Biology Working Group this year: the announcement in April that tourist visits to the Rainbow vent site were being scheduled for October 1999. The cruise organization was being done by Zegrahm DeepSea Voyages, a tour company that has previously conducted tour groups to the Titanic. The platform for the cruises was the Akademik Keldysh with the MIR submersibles.
