Digital video data and temperature, salinity and other physical data taken during the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration's Florida Coast Deep Corals 2005 cruise from 2005-11-07 to 2005-11-21

These video data as well as temperature, salinity and other physical data were collected during the Florida Coast Deep Corals mission of 2005. The data gathered during this expedition provided a strong foundation of information on the deep-water coral ecosystems off the Florida coast. The expedition was sponsored by the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration.

With the continuing global depletion of coastal fisheries, commercial fishing vessels are moving into deeper water and exploiting fish and crustacean species that are frequently associated with complex coral structures. Deep-sea coral ecosystems (DSCE) exist at numerous locations around the coast of Florida. These coral communities provide habitat for relatively unknown but highly diverse assemblages of fish and invertebrates, many of which are undoubtedly undescribed species. There is therefore an urgent need to identify these coral habitats, map their distribution and abundance, and document any potentially valuable fishery species associated with them. Resource managers can use this information to develop conservation policy and scientists can use it as a foundation for hypothesis driven ecological and physiological research. Since deepwater reefs are not visible to the general public, dissemination of information through the media and the education system is vital in order to create empathy for their protection. The overarching objective of this proposal is to increase the current understanding of deep-water coral habitats along Florida's coasts. Unlike shallow water tropical reefs, deep-water reefs are not well known.
