Deep Sea Corals

Architects of the Deep

One of the goals of the Gulf of Mexico 2017 expedition was to search for corals in deep waters of the Gulf, as these corals provide habitat for a diversity of organisms such as sponges, shrimp, worms, and more. By locating deep-sea coral communities, we are in a better position to understand and thus manage marine resources in the Gulf of Mexico.
