Species of both hard and soft corals are inhabitants of the outer U.S. continental shelf and continental slope. Given that the existence of these coral species has been known for over a century, it is striking that almost nothing is known about their biology, population status, the role they play in enhancing local species diversity, or their role as habitat for deep water fishes, including those targeted by fishermen.
