Coral reefs

Dataset

The map shows documented and located coral reefs of the Lophelia pertusa stone coral. The occurrence of coral reefs is indicated as points on the map. These provide valuable information as a basis for assessing new fish farming consignments, discharges into the sea, landfill, development of petroleum-related installations, and regulation of fishing activities. The data are suitable for the preparation of thematic maps, overview maps, interactive maps, map solutions on the Internet and geographical analyzes. On a web map it is recommended that coral reefs are used in the scale from 1: 500 to 1: 11000000. For more information on coral reefs, visit: http://www.mareano.no/tema/koraller/korallrev
