Abstract
    This report reveals the global scale of the vulnerability of habitat-forming stony corals on seamounts - and that of associated marine biodiversity and assemblages - to the impacts of trawling, especially in areas beyond national jurisdiction. It provides some of the best scientific evidence to date to support the call for concerted and urgent action on the high seas to protect seamount communities and their associated resources from the adverse effects of deep-water fishing.
