Deep-Sea Corals

NOAA National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science


These data contain biological and location information for deep-sea corals and sponges. 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 2,000 meters.
