Hi All,

Just in case you missed it, this week's Tuesday edition of the 
Washington Post had an article focused on mesophotic coral ecosystems.. 
The article highlighted work that we've been funding in Hawaii under the 
Deep-Coral Reef Ecosystem Studies Program focused on understanding the 
processes that regulate these ecosystems and assessing their 
vulnerability to exploitation and human disturbance.

Additionally, NOAA announced on October 13, 2011, the awarding of a new 
project two investigate the role the mesophotic reefs of Pulley Ridge 
play in replenishing key fish species and other organisms in the 
downstream reefs of the Florida Keys and the Dry Tortugas.
