Atlantic corals: Colorful and vulnerable
from The New York Times
A council that sets regulations for fishing off the mid-Atlantic coast will meet to consider protections for little known and fragile ecosystems of deep sea corals in and around 15 ocean sites. Environmental groups and sport fishermen are pushing for protection of these canyons and other sites, which run from Block Canyon off New York to Norfolk Canyon off Virginia, from squid fishing. They also are lobbying for other restrictions on fishing in a much broader zone.
