Description:"On August 9-10, 2011, scientists and resource managers met at the James J. Howard Marine Science Laboratory, in Highlands, NJ to further define the exploration and research priorities laid out in the NOAA Strategic Plan for Deep-Sea Coral and Sponge Ecosystems, and to identify critical information needs for deep-sea coral and sponge ecosystems off the Northeast U.S. coast. The workshop was funded by NOAA's Deep-Sea Coral Research and Technology Program. The ultimate goal of the workshop was to identify steps necessary to improve the understanding needed to conserve and manage these deep-sea ecosystems. Workshop participants represented a broad range of stakeholders including the Federal government, the New England and the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Councils, academia, private industry, nongovernmental organizations and Canadian academic and governmental representatives (See Appendix A for a list of participants)"--Introduction.
