The pigmentation and corresponding in vivo and in vitro absorption characteristics in three different deep-water coral species: white and orange Lophelia pertusa, Paragorgia arborea and Primnoa resedaeformis, collected from the Trondheimsfjord are described. Pigments were isolated and characterized by High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) analysis and High-Performance Liquid Chromatography Time-Of-Flight Mass Spectrometer (LC-TOF MS). The main carotenoids identified for all three coral…

Automated Activity Estimation of the Cold-Water Coral Lophelia pertusa by Multispectral Imaging and Computational Pixel Classification
The cold-water coral Lophelia pertusa builds up bioherms that sustain high biodiversity in the deep ocean worldwide. Photographic monitoring of the polyp activity represents a helpful tool to
Development of hyperspectral imaging as a bio-optical taxonomic tool for pigmented marine organisms
TLDR
Describing species-specific absorption and corresponding reflection signatures of marine organisms and discussing optical fingerprints from underwater hyperspectral imaging (UHI) for future automated identification of organisms on the seafloor are discussed.
Underwater hyperspectral classification of deep sea corals exposed to a toxic compound
TLDR
Underwater hyperspectral imaging is evaluated as a method to detect changes in health status of both orange and white color morphs of the coral species Lophelia pertusa and is a first step towards developing a remote sensing technique able to assess environmental impact on deep-water coral habitats over larger areas.
Underwater hyperspectral classification of deep sea corals exposed to 2-methylnaphthalene
TLDR
Underwater hyperspectral imaging is evaluated as a method to detect changes in health status of both orange and white color morphs of the coral species Lophelia pertusa and is a first step towards developing a remote sensing technique able to assess environmental impact on deep-water coral habitats over larger areas.
In situ growth and bioerosion rates of Lophelia pertusa in a Norwegian fjord and open shelf cold-water coral habitat
TLDR
A first estimate of the dimensions of both processes in natural cold-water coral habitats is given, indicating that calcium carbonate loss through bioerosion amounts to one fifth to one sixth of the production rates by coral calcification by way of accretion–bioerosion.
Remote Sensing of the Tautra Ridge: An Overview of the World’s Shallowest Cold-Water Coral Reefs
On the Tautra Ridge – a 39-100 m deep morainic sill located in the middle of the Trondheimsfjord, Norway – some of the world’s shallowest known occurrences of the scleractinian cold-water coral (CWC)
Mantle Branch-Specific RNA Sequences of Moon Scallop Amusium pleuronectes to Identify Shell Color-Associated Genes
TLDR
High-throughput transcriptome sequencing and profiling were applied in this project to reveal the detailed molecular mechanism of shell color differentiation in A. pleuronectes and identify putative SNP and SSR markers which provided the markers for genetic diversity analysis, genetic linkage, QTL analysis.
Impact of different preservation treatments on lipids of the smooth clam Callista chione
Summary The soft clam Callista chione is highly appreciated among marine inhabitants for nutritional, commercial and economic reasons. This work aims to determine the lipid classes’ profile of C.

Pigmentation and spectral absorbance in the deep-sea arctic amphipods Eurythenes gryllus and Anonyx sp.
TLDR
Differences in pigment composition and wavelength shifts suggest large intra- and inter-specific differences between the two species.
Determination of canthaxanthin in the red coral (Corallium rubrum) from Marseille by HPLC combined with UV and MS detection
TLDR
The results give the first evidence of the presence of canthaxanthin, 4,4′-diketo-β-carotene, as the major carotenoid in all samples of C. rubrum.
Chromoprotein- and pigment-dependent modeling of spectral light absorption in two dinoflagellates, Prorocentrum minimum and Heterocapsa pygmaea
TLDR
The chromoprotein model provided accurate spectral estimates of in vivo absorption coefficents and worked equally well for dinoflagellate species with or without the major light-harvesting peridinin-chlorophyll-protein complex, PCP.
Isolation and characterization of marine pigmented bacteria from Norwegian coastal waters and screening for carotenoids with UVA-blue light absorbing properties
TLDR
The aim was to screen and identify bacterial isolates producing carotenoids that absorb light in the UVA-Blue light and develop a high throughput LC-MS method for characterization and screening of a larger sub-fraction of the culture collection.
Photoacclimation in phytoplankton: implications for biomass estimates, pigment functionality and chemotaxonomy
TLDR
It is suggested that the interpretation of PPC and LHP are highly dependent on biomass normalization (Chl a vs. C) and the same Chl a-normalized ratios were weakly affected by the light intensity due to co-variation with ChL a.

TLDR
This review discusses the nature and significance of pigments, the chemical and biological processes involved, the factors responsible for and affecting bright colourations, as well as their evolution and speculation as to their function.
Occurrence of UVA- and UVB-absorbing compounds in 152 species (206 strains) of marine microalgae
TLDR
Marine microalgae (152 species, 206 strains) from 12 classes were examined for the presence of UVA- and UVB-absorbing compounds and HPLC analysis of extracts showed suites of mycosporine-like amino acids in 4 of them, which included mycosportine-glycine, asterina-330, shinorine, porphyra-334 and palythine.

TLDR
Carotinoids concentration in traditional cultured salmon was higher than the carotenoid concentration in natural salmon and ecological cultured salmon, and the lowest carotinoid concentration was determined in the ecological cultured rainbow trout.
