Summary, Deep-sea corals workshop: International Planning and Collaboration Workshop for the Gulf of Mexico and the North Atlantic Ocean, Summary, 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 in deep, dark waters where temperatures range from °C (°F).

For this reason, we call Summary corals the "cold-water" or "deep-sea" corals. They are found all over the world. 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 Deep-sea corals workshop book 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. Summary, Deep-sea corals workshop [microform]: International Planning and Collaboration Workshop for the Gulf of Mexico and the North Atlantic Ocean, Galway, Ireland, January[] McDonough, J.
