Adata portal for species record locations on seamounts workd wide. In UK/Irish waters they have data for:
Anton Dohrn
Rosemary bank
Hatton Bank

All species record seem to be Lophelia pertusa or fish. Some unknow scleractinians. Most records taken from the literature, and many from the 18th centuary. Needs updating!
