If whale carcasses act as stepping stones for hydrothermal vent organisms to get from one place to another, how could unregulated whaling influence vent communities?

To determine

The way in which unregulated whaling influences the vent communities if whale carcasses act as stepping stones for hydrothermal vent organisms to get from one place to another.

Explanation of Solution

The specialized organisms that occupy seep and vent communities disperse over great distances between vent systems. The vents last only tens of years at the most. Whale-fall communities may act as “stepping stones” for sulfur-oxidizing chemosynthetic bacteria, thereby permitting generations of them to cross the ocean floor to colonize newly formed hydrothermal vents...
