Deep-sea coral reefs live in the cold, dark waters of the oceans but like shallow water tropical coral reefs they have a distinct, diverse and sometimes highly endemic associated animal community. These reefs are under direct threat from deep-sea trawling and in some areas have already been seriously impacted by fishing. At present there is no protection for these habitats on the high seas.
