The distribution of the coral Lophelia pertusa (L.) [L. prolifera (Pallas)] in the north-east Atlantic

  • J. B. Wilson (a1)

A compilation has been made of new data on the distribution of the deep-water coralLophelia pertusa(L.) derived from trawling records, grab and dredge stations and submersible dives, together with the few published records. The coral is widely distributed and occurs on all the offshore banks of the north-east Atlantic, with some records from the deepest water of the Minches and Sea of the Hebrides.
