The scientists probably just want to study it just for the sake of studying it (we know very little about the deep seas, and discover on average 2 new species with EVERY dive), but no one gives you money to do that. Having a better "purpose" (i.e. economically viable) may be the only way to get funding.

Committees have become so important nowadays that subcommittees have to be appointed to do the work.
