Deep-Sea Canyons Need Protection, Says NRDC

An article on the National Resources Defense Council is calling for increased protection for the unique ecosystems of the East Coast canyons, which are found along the edge of the continental shelf anywhere from 80 to 150 miles offshore.

According to the NRDC, the canyons and the marine life they support—including many species of big-game fish such as tuna and marlin—are threatened by offshore seismic drilling, mining and bottom trawl commercial fishing, all of which can disrupt and damage the offshore ecosystem.
