Extensive deep coral reefs in Hawaii harbor unique species and high coral cover

A team of sixteen researchers has completed a comprehensive investigation of deep coral-reef environments, known as mesophotic coral ecosystems, throughout the Hawaiian Archipelago. The study, published in the open-access journal PeerJ, spanned more than two decades and involved a combination of submersibles, remotely operated vehicles, drop-cameras, data recorders, and advanced mixed-gas diving to study these difficult-to-reach environments.
