  • The importance of the deep, cold-water hexacorals as cold-water bioherms and their contribution to marine carbonate production has been demonstrated elsewhere. However, no research has been carried out to examine the contribution of carbonate production by deep, cold- water octocorals (CWOC), even though this group comprises a major component of cold-water coral fauna in the NW Pacific. To assess the contribution of CWOC carbonate production on the Shiribeshi Seamount (43° 34-36' N, 139° 31-35… CONTINUE READING
