Project: Atlantic Coral Ecosystem Study.
- project duration
- 01-MAR-00 – 28-FEB-03
- The Aces project will adopt a whole ecosystem approach to the study of the European deepwater coral province. It is now known that cold-water coral species produce reefs which rival their tropical counterparts in terms of their species richness and diversity. The aim is a margin wide environmental baseline assessment of the status of Europe's deep-water coral margin with recommendations for further sustainable development.
