  • About the Edition

    This document summarizes the proceedings of the Deep-Sea Corals Workshop held in Galway, Ireland on January 16-17, 2003. The workshop was hosted by the Irish Marine Institute (MI) and organized by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). A group of deep-sea coral researchers met in Galway to discuss the need for an International Deep-Sea Corals Action Plan, identify critical information needs to increase our understanding of these unique and fragile habitats, and identify collaborative efforts to help meet those critical needs. Representatives from eight countries including Belgium, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States met discuss and formulate an International Deep-sea Coral Action Plan. Each of these countries has a vested interest in deep-sea coral research and management.

    Data describing the distributions of deep-sea corals and other species that live in the deep ocean are often limited by the prohibitive costs and logistical difficulties of surveying the deep ocean. Habitat suitability modeling has become a cost-effective tool for identifying potential locations of deep-sea corals and other species, particularly for areas that have never been explored. The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council is one of eight fishery management councils responsible for the management of marine fisheries in the United States Exclusive Economic Zone. The council develops management plans for twelve species of fish and species off . Deep-sea coral communities, like the ones found in the national marine sanctuaries of the West Coast, are home to many diverse species. This curriculum takes students into the deep sea to identify the soft corals, hard corals, invertebrates and fish found in these communities and to investigate the unique biology of deep-sea corals. Learn the threats these animals face and what we can do help.

    Predictive location models for deep-sea corals are provided and were created by combining known location information with environmental and oceanographic data. Deep-sea coral occurs on the continental shelves and slopes at ocean depths of approximately 50 to greater than 2, meters. Additional Information Support.

Summary, Deep-sea corals workshop: International Planning and Collaboration Workshop for the Gulf of Mexico and the North Atlantic Ocean, Galway, Ireland, JanuaryWhat Is Deep-Sea Coral Habitat. While the conditions are extreme, the deep sea is home to an abundant variety of life.

Deep-sea corals, like their warm-water cousins, are actually colonies of small animals that build a common skeleton, which grows into many shapes and colors. Not all corals are found on island coasts in shallow seas. In fact, over half of all known coral species are found Summary deep, dark waters where temperatures range from °C (°F).

For this reason, we call these corals the "cold-water" or "deep-sea" corals. They are found all over the world. Summary Deep-Sea Coral Research and Technology Program Information Management Workshop July 20th & 21st,Silver Spring, Maryland – Workshop Summary Executive Summary: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) held an information management workshop for deep-sea corals in Silver Spring, Maryland, on July 20th and 21st, Deep sea reefs are sometimes referred to as "mounds," which more accurately describes the large calcium carbonate skeleton that is left behind as a reef grows and corals below die off, rather than the living habitat and refuge that deep sea corals provide for fish and invertebrates.

Mounds may or may not contain living deep sea reefs.
