Abstract:

EV Nautilus cruise NA043: Ecosystems Impacts of Oil and Gas Inputs to the Gulf of Mexico (ECOGIG) consortia cruise to monitor corals around Macondo and sample corals, mussels and sediments. Push cores using a ROV were obtained from 7 sites to assay infauna diversity. We made collections from a total 44 live corals using the ROV at 4 sites for analyses of microbial and small eukaryotic associates. Mussels were collected at four sites for symbiont phylogentic and physiological analyses. Between 40 and 80 individual coral colony images from each of 6 deep water coral sites.

Purpose:

1) We revisited 6 known deep water coral sites in the Gulf to re-image corals with the ROV and use the data to follow the outcome of impact (or lack of impact) on the corals from the Deep Water Horizon Disaster. At each of these sites between 40 – 80 specific individual coral colonies were revisited and imaged. New corals were discovered at one new site near Macondo and imaged for the first time. Physical markers on the sea floor were used to aid in locating each coral and calibration of navigation to previous visits was excellent. 2) We obtained push cores using the ROV on every dive except the last three. 3) Made collections from a total 44 live corals using the ROV at 4 sites for analyses of microbial and small eukaryotic associates. 4) We collected mussels at four sites for symbiont phylogentic and physiological analyses 5) We deployed Ian’s VTLC Camera at GC 600
