Abstract
To determine whether deep-sea habitat forming corals may be affected by Ocean Acidification this report gives baseline data on coral mineralogy, reviews age and growth and in aquaria studies to see how they might tolerate and respond to future climate change, and researches the influence of present day carbonate concentrations on the distribution of deep-sea corals and associated fisheries habitat in New Zealand waters. Potential refugia for deep-sea corals are identified.
