The un importance of labile detritus in supporting microbial and faunal carbon demands. Resilience of benthic deep-sea fauna to mining activities.
Cold-water coral reefs and adjacent sponge grounds: Niche overlap between a cold-water coral and an associated sponge for isotopically-enriched particulate food sources. Opportunistic feeding on various organic food sources by the cold-water coral Lophelia pertusa.
PLoS One 13 3: The knowledge on the adverse effects on human health due to the consumption of marine organisms containing microplastics is very limited, difficult to assess and still controversial. These high respiration rates indicate strong organic matter consumption, and hence suggest a local focusing onto these ecosystems of the downward flux of organic matter that is exported from the surface ocean.
Deep-sea coral reefs grow in the oceans at great depths in the dark. Then they found other items, such as cast-iron pots, called trypots, of the type used to melt whale blubber, indicating that it wasn't just any old wreck; marine archaeologists concluded that they had found a whaling ship.
