Think about locations of coral reefs around the world, and the last place you might list is Norway. But northern Norway is precisely where the largest known cold-water coral reef lies.
Cold-water corals are just that − coral species found in cold, deep water throughout the globe, on continental
shelves, ocean banks and seamounts. Living at depths of more than 3,000 feet in temperatures of 39 to 55 degrees Farenheit, cold-water corals form small patches or thickets as well as larger reef structures.
