A photo of dense fields of Lophelia pertusa, a common reef-building coral, found on the Blake Plateau knolls. The corals are white in color, which is healthy - deep-sea corals don’t rely on symbiotic algae so they can’t bleach. Researchers discovered thriving Lophelia pertusa reefs in a region farther offshore and in deeper water than other known Lophelia reefs in the U.S. Atlantic. This image of “Million Mounds” shows healthy habitat with extremely high live coral cover. Credit: NOAA Ocean Exploration.
