Abstract: The cold-water coral Lophelia pertusa is the most important reef-building coral species in the NE Atlantic Ocean. The reef framework creates a complex structural habitat that sustains high species diversity in the deep-sea. During the last decades, powered by improvements in deep-sea research equipment, it has become clear that threats imposed by anthropogenic activities have caused considerable destruction of these cold-water coral ecosystems. To assist cold-water coral management and conse... more
