This report describes the 2016 and 2017 research activities partially or fully funded by the Program to meet NOAA's mandate to identify, study, and monitor deep-sea coral areas. The report is supplemented with details of these activities: The report also briefly describes progress during this period in MSA and other NOAA management actions that contribute to protecting deep-sea coral areas.

A subset of deep-sea coral research activities funded and executed by NOAA programs and offices other than the Deep Sea Coral Research and Technology Program is briefly discussed, as these activities are providing data that will be analyzed by our Program.
