A fan coral is pictured in this Greenpeace handout image. The coral was collected in the Bering Sea's Pribilof Canyon as part of a Greenpeace research expedition there in August 2007. The top image shows a close-up of the coral on the deck of the Greenpeace support vessel Esparanza on July 30, 2007. The bottom image shows the coral at a depth of approximately 1100 feet as a rockfish swims by. This is the first recorded discovery of this species in the Bering Sea.
