A recent meeting in Tampa, Florida convened 50 scientists and policymakers from the U.S., Canada, Ireland, the United Kingdom and Norway to begin to identify the priority research areas for deep sea corals. From the meeting, five research themes/needs emerged: 1) mapping the distribution of deep-sea corals; 2) ecology of organisms associated with deep-sea corals; 3) physiology of deep-sea corals and response to change; 4) taxonomic studies; and 5) paleo-retrospective analyses.
