Ireland's ocean neighbourhood is both intimate and vast, from the pools and kelp forests of the shores to the distant canyons and precipices of the continental shelf - a territory now mapped by the National Seabed Survey. Among its discoveries are astonishing deep-sea coral reefs, teeming with diversity, part of the hidden landscape explored in these pages. The ocean species and ecosystems - lives as microscopic as plankton, as majestic as sharks and whales - are introduced and described, as are the challenges that face both the fish and their human predators.
