The Darwin Mounds are a series of small (<=5 m high, 75-100 m diameter) sandy features located in the northern Rockall Trough. They provide a habitat for communities of Lophelia pertusa and associated fauna. Suspended particulate organic matter (sPOM) reaching the deep-sea floor, which could potentially fuel this deep-water coral (DWC) ecosystem, was collected during summer 2000. This was relatively "fresh" (i.e. dominated by labile lipids such as polyunsaturated fatty acids) and was derived largely...
