Habitat

A healthy ecosystem means protecting ecologically sensitive areas of seafloor such as sponges and deep-sea corals. These areas, in turn, support an abundance of groundfish that makes sustainable fishing possible. As we continue to learn more about habitat deep beneath the surface, we must take care to protect these places from damaging fishing practices, such as bottom trawls that drag along the seafloor.
