As hard core reef hobbyist, we are also very much fascinated with the ecology and biology and the conservation of any marine creature, and deep water corals are no exception. It’s been quite a long time since we first shared Lophelia.org, and the website has added much more great articles since then. In case your not aware, Lophelia is one of those websites we very much enjoy visiting because, the website just contains a wealth of information from anywhere on the basic structure of the skeleton of Lophelia to the microbiology of Lophelia.
The website, as the name implies, focuses primarily on Lophelia, but has some great info on deep reefs in general and always has the latest news on deep coral research. Above is a short introduction to the website by Sir David Attenborough, a well respected naturalist and the face and voice of many natural history programs.
