Seafloor Characteristics and Distribution Patterns of Lophelia pertusa and Other Sessile Megafauna at Two Upper-Slope Sites in the Northeaster Gulf of Mexico

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The tuft coral Lophelia pertusa is a deep-water coral that is very slow to develop and fragile, which makes recovery from any type of damage a very slow process. Current fishing practices and oil drilling are destructive processes that effect these coral systems. The goal of this paper is to learn more about the Lophelia pertusa and determine how best to protect these deep-water systems.
