“Oceana commends Portuguese Government for proposing the Gorringe Bank as a Site of Community Interest in accordance with EU legislation. This unique spot includes two seamounts, Gettysburg and Ormonde, located 160 nautical miles off the southwestern Portuguese coast. They extend from depths of 28 m and 33 m below sea level to more than 5,000 m and their biodiversity is very rich. Oceana has identified and described more than 350 species in this zone during its expeditions using divers and submarine robots, in 2005, 2011 and 2012.”
