Here's a little-known fact: Norway hosts a majority of the world's known cold-water coral reefs. And if you've never seen what a cold-water coral reef looks like, the stunning video here is unforgettable:
As much as 30 to 50 percent of these fragile reefs are either impacted or destroyed by bottom trawling. Today about 100 EU trawlers, 50 Norwegian trawlers and 250 Russians trawlers hold fishing licences for Norwegian waters, in addition to those in the North Sea.
