Abstract

ng ROV-imaging techniques, red coral populations along several cliffs on MPA of the Gulf of Naples were investigated and the coralligenous habitats were characterized in terms of cover percent and number of morphological groups. Pizzaco site showed the richest and most diverse habitat. Density of red coral colonies were calculated and compared with morphometric parameters, obtaining a moderate decrease of density with increase of size. Finally, fishing pressure was estimated through frequency of lost fishing gears; S. Angelo resulted the most stressed site.
